Community Science Program
Are you interested in helping to protect the plants and animals on Heritage Conservancy preserves? How about collecting data that contributes to real science? Join our Community Science Program!
Community Science involves people, like you, who contribute basic observations on plants, animals, and other living things that bolster local and global scientific research in support of conservation and ecosystem-based management goals. Heritage Conservancy will train volunteers and provide opportunities to engage in real science. This community science data will help to inform Heritage Conservancy’s preserve management decisions to increase conservation value. Additionally, through the use of tools like iNaturalist, the information enhances data available for scientists to track species and populations over time and contributes to larger worldwide conservation initiatives.
If you are interested in learning something new about nature, participating in science, or even just enjoy taking pictures while hiking, then this program is for you! We have multiple projects that are aimed at monitoring certain species including birds, butterflies, amphibians, plants, and any other living organism you may be curious about.
Volunteers of all ages are welcome. No experience is necessary, the schedule is flexible, and training will be provided.
