Our conferences give attendees the opportunity to access new resources and build connections that take their citizen science work to the next level. When asked what they love about our conferences, people say:

“I've been networking with new people thanks to the meeting, which has resulted in my being included as a collaborator on some new grants and has improved my access to resources that others have developed.  The networking opportunities afforded by the meeting were truly excellent.”

“Becoming aware of the depth and breadth of citizen science across the many disciplines of science, from neurons to great-blue herons, from microbes to whales.  Until you literally “meet” the people doing this work, it is easy to take it for granted or underestimate it.”
