Community and Citizen Science in Conservation Course

The Center for Community and Citizen Science offers a 2-unit ”Community and Citizen Science in Conservation” course at UC Davis. The course involves weekly discussion and exploration of community and citizen science (CCS) approaches and applications broadly related to conservation. With an emphasis on recent academic literature, each session focuses on a different topic such as equity and justice, project design and implementation, and participant and conservation benefits. Other topics are identified and explored based on student interest. This course allows students to develop ideas for CCS projects within their own research. 

Students who complete the course are eligible to apply for the CCS in Conservation Fellowship, offered annually by the UC Davis Center for Community and Citizen Science.
