From bioblitzes to beach surveys to ongoing projects, the Academy's citizen science programs offer great ways for people of all ages to get more involved with the world around them. By exploring local tide pools, lakes, mountains, and even backyards, citizen scientists collect observations that help scientists answer questions—and address challenges—about our environment today. 

Learn more about citizen science at the Academy—what it is, which programs and events are coming up, and how to get involved—by visiting our extensive program's online home in Explore Science!
