Community Science

Participate in Community Science

Community science (also known as citizen science, crowd science, or volunteer monitoring) is scientific research conducted, in whole or in part, by nonprofessional scientists. That means YOU can help conduct important research that will directly contribute to the understanding of bird population health and conservation in our region! There are a number of community science projects in the Houston area that need volunteers. Check out a few options through Houston Audubon below!
