Tools for Using Citizen Science in Environmental, Agricultural, and Natural Resources Extension Programs
Stofer, Kathryn A.
Journal of Extension, v55 n2 Article 2TOT8 Apr 2017
Citizen science is quickly becoming a valuable tool in the Extension professional's tool kit. This is the case whether you are a 4-H agent looking to involve youth in agriscience and agriculture-related science, technology, engineering, and math experiential learning activities or an agriculture and natural resources agent seeking to help stakeholders in your county or scientific community connect to address issues. This article outlines a number of existing resources within and outside Extension to support agents, professional researchers, and communities in coming together to understand, and ultimately improve, the state of their environment.
