Audubon’s Christmas Bird Count, Other Citizen Science Opportunities

Volunteers have always been important to conservation. If you participate as a citizen scientist in Audubon’s Christmas Bird Count from December 14 to January 5, you’ll be adding to data collected for more than a century!
Researchers, conservation biologists, wildlife agencies, and other interested individuals use the data to study the long-term health and status of bird populations across North America.
Sign up for a count near you.
State parks and forests also have citizen science opportunities that you can participate in year round, including:
-- Bird, bat, amphibian, and monarch butterfly monitoring and counting
-- Tree and plant monitoring and measuring
-- Water quality testing
