Citizen Science

In Citizen Science, non-scientists work with scientists on research.  Citizen Science networks are indispensable for research that needs a lot of people, such as monitoring invasive species. Also, citizens who participate learn about the research subject and the scientific method. Citizen Science connects research with outreach.
