Incorporating citizen scientists into research where only trained scientists were previously believed to be qualified is a growing trend. The immense body of data being generated by citizen-based efforts is proof that citizen participation increases the amount of data collected with similar accuracy to that of a trained scientist. This panel discussion – featuring SYRCL scientists, local community members, and Earthwatch Institute - will center on how citizen scientists increase the capacity of research and monitoring projects both locally and across the world.

Activist Center workshops are sponsored by Earthjustice.
