Citizen Science

cit·i·zen sci·ence



  1. the collection and analysis of data relating to the natural world by members of the general public, typically as part of a collaborative project with professional scientists.

Since its inception, the Raccoon River Watershed Association has emphasized the importance of Citizen Science activities.  Over the years we have coordinated and encouraged members to do water testing, logging of plants, insects, birds, mussels and other life in the watershed.
