Many young learners are interested in animals, plants, ecosystems, or the weather. Others like to journal or take photos of nature or wildlife. They are all well on their way to becoming community scientists! Join us to learn more about ways that young people everywhere can contribute to scientific understanding of our natural world. We will try out some community science projects of our own at our exhibits and in your neighborhoods!
