Resources & Research : Citizen Science

Citizen Scientists Wanted

Are you interested in watching wildlife?  Do you want to contribute to monitoring habitat conditions and conserving the High Plains ecosystem?  If you answered yes to these questions, you could be part of the Plains Conservation Center’s First Saturday Citizen Scientists group. 

Citizen Scientists, from novice observers to expert naturalists, will contribute to the PCC’s Biological Inventory by working with PCC naturalists to gather, compile, and map information about our prairie residents.   Information will be used monitor changes over time and to help make land and resource management decisions.

Survey work will take place the first Saturday of each month.  Training is provided.  The bird and mammal census is scheduled for 7-8:45 AM.  Participants may elect to help with either survey, or with both.

Registration is REQUIRED.  To participate, or for more information, please contact Sara Aufderhar, at 303-693-3621 or
