Citizen Science in your Community

You are here

Rural and urban landscapes are filled with wild spaces and green places where nature has made a home. We hope to inspire you and your community to get involved in the recording of the nature on your doorstep.  You can also measure the physical environment, so weather, air quality and even stars can all be surveyed by Citizen Scientists through interesting and innovative projects.

There are plenty of community groups getting involved in Citizen Science through:

  • participation in national surveys
  • involvement with local records centres
  • participating in monitoring projects set up by local rangers, biodiversity officers or reserve managers
  • training and participation with local wildlife Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs)
