CCS Cooperative Extension
We’re proud to announce a new special issue of California Agriculture exploring the many ways that community and citizen science (CCS) are playing a role in cooperative extension. Ryan Meyer, Sabrina Drill, and Chris Jadallah served as guest editors of this collection, which spans a wide range of topics while illustrating the many different ways that CCS is used by extension professionals to advance their work.
In late 2017, the Center for Community and Citizen Science began an assessment of public participation in research throughout the University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources. The final report, “Community and Citizen Science at the UC Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources” is now available! Authored by our Executive Director Ryan Meyer and California Naturalist Interim Director Sabrina Drill, the report examines the status of community and citizen science at UC ANR and provides a roadmap for increasing UC ANR’s capacity for CCS.
