What is it? Citizen science is the collection and analysis of data relating to the natural world by members of the general public, typically as part of a collaborative project with professional scientists. Here at the Kalamazoo Nature Center we offer a wide variety of scientific projects that volunteers can become involved in. We welcome groups and individuals of all ages and experience levels to join us in our conservation efforts. Becoming a citizen scientist is a great way to contribute to valuable research, learn about our environment, and connect with our natural communities!
How do I get involved? Join our team of dedicated citizen scientists by first filling out a volunteer application with your skills, interests, and weekly availability so we can match you with a project that is the best fit for you.
