About the Inventory

The CDI Citizen Science Working Group (CSWG) has designed an inventory to gather information about Citizen Science (CS) projects and programs going on within the USGS and with close partners.  The goals and utility for this information gathering process are to:

  • create a snap shot of the activities going on across the USGS and partners, as well as
  • provide content for outreach and informational web sites and searchable databases where USGS can showcase activities that the general public can participate and take a stake in.

Our current vision for the inventory is to utilize the information to expose and spotlight the stellar USGS programs that are including citizen science in their research.  We anticipate working with the USGS Office of Communications and Publishing to create a rotating CS project highlight feature on the USGS home page to raise awareness of our projects.  This content could be shared with the DOI Volunteer and other web sites which showcase projects and opportunities to the general public from across Federal agencies.

The CSWG held a workshop September 11 - 12, 2012 where USGS scientists and researchers gathered to discuss citizen science and their experiences as well as discuss various topics through presentations, group discussions, and posters.
