There are many ways to get involved with our group, including our newsletter, regular meetings and events, and student opportunities. Explore below and reach out with any questions.


Events and Lab Group

Collabinar Series

We developed the CCS Collabinar as a way to collaborate with others on exciting challenges and opportunities in community and citizen science. This occasional, informal series provides a space for people to both present their work and engage with others. Our guests will give brief presentations, but the focus is on working through challenges, design opportunities, mutual learning, and exploring potential collaboration. See our upcoming events here.


Student Opportunities

There are many ways that current and prospective students can engage with us at the Center for Community and Citizen Science. In general research centers on campus can provide a valuable opportunity for students to:


CCS in Conservation Fellowship

Training, mentorship, and funding for graduate students in conservation

Effective conservation brings together research, partnerships across disciplines and sectors, and a commitment to iterative learning that supports long-term stewardship. In conservation science, community and citizen science (CCS) approaches can be especially powerful and yield valuable data while also advancing other parts of a conservation program, such as education and community engagement. However, formal training in CCS is not yet widely available for graduate students pursuing degrees in conservation science.



If you are interested in community and citizen science and would like to work with our Center, please see current opportunities listed below.
