Citizen Science 101
You don’t have to be an expert to be part of scientific research! Learn to observe and report on animals and plants you see, hear, or photograph. Discover research projects that fit your interests, and see how your data can be used to benefit ongoing scientific research, including the effects of climate change.

She serves on two Vermont Scientific Advisory Groups, Birds and Reptiles-and-Amphibians. When not at the Museum, she can often be found looking for salamanders for the Vermont Reptile and Amphibian Atlas, collecting data for iNaturalist and eBird, or volunteering with the Four Winds Nature Institute and Vermont Master Naturalists.
