Spring into Citizen Science!

Welcome back everyone!  We've made it through the cold days of winter and now the weather is getting warmer.  Soon migrating birds will return, hibernating animals will wake up, and flowers will start to bloom.  So it's also time for new citizen projects to be born and old favorites to return.

All this month OpenScientist will highlight the many nature and biology projects most active in the spring and summer.  Help document nature waking up through Project Budburst.  Learn about birdwatching and help build a census of our high-flying friends.  And watch the activity of frogs, squirrels, fireflies, and other creatures as they wake up for Spring.

So watch this blog over the next few weeks for the new "Spring into Citizen Science!" campaign.  Advance science, enjoy the outdoors, and help save the planet.  All from the comfort of your own backyard.
