Citizen science is valuable for monitoring biodiversity and natural phenomena in a rapidly changing world. Speakers from the MSU community will come together to describe how scientists use scientific networks and citizen science to collect and analyze data on butterflies, mammals, gardens, and more. A Q&A session with the speakers will follow. Local to international citizen science projects will be highlighted, including information about how you can become a citizen scientist.
