It is Citizen Science Month!
Citizen Science Month is in the month of April. Citizen Science is an organization that builds a collaborative relationship between both scientists and individuals that want to effect positive change in the environment. Through programs like The Great Backyard Bird Count (February), citizen science allows for individuals who have an interest in scientific exploration and analysis in certain fields to participate in furthering scientific understanding on a global scale.
