Cornell Lab of Ornithology


Citizen Science Toolkit Conference

Citizen science is a diverse, interdisciplinary field. In June of 2007, scientists, educators, technology specialists, and other experts of varied backgrounds, gathered at the Laboratory of Ornithology in Ithaca, NY, to discuss how to best support new and existing projects.

Ideas generated during the conference were used to develop the Citizen Science Toolkit, and are now inspiring a broader conversation about collaborative research ventures.

We invite you to explore the conference materials, and join the growing community of practitioners moving this field forward.
