What We Do

Citizen Science

The Urban Ecology Center's Citizen Science Program serves as a meaningful bridge between academic research and the community-at-large, enabling collaboration, and creating a more engaged, knowledgeable and ecologically literate citizenry. The Center maintains a network of urban field stations in which all research is accessible to and advised by volunteers.

With careful training, volunteers conduct cutting-edge research, from studying the physiology of migrating birds to discovering the winter quarters of threatened snakes. Citizen Science volunteers work with bats, bugs, plants, snakes, turtles, mice and a host of other critters!

The Research and Citizen Science Program invites you to read their Research and Citizen Science Annual Reviews.
