The Holiday season has almost drawn to a close. For the past few weeks friends and family have discussed the Peace, Love and Joy of the season. But I want to talk about one more thing...the joy of giving citizen science.
Unlike other gifts citizen science is not just enjoyed on Christmas or Hanukkah. It is a gift of lifetime exploration and the wonder of nature. It also helps everyone else...helping researchers learn more and advancing the technology crucial for making the world a better place. Each post of mine tries to big that same gift to you, and my holiday gift guide hopefully helped you give it to others. But I was also fortunate to receive a couple gifts myself this year and wanted to share them with you.
Nature's Notebook, the Great Backyard Bird Count, or other citizen science projects.
Coming up is 2013 and a whole new year of citizen science. I look forward to playing with these new gifts and discovering many projects to discuss with you. Things are changing rapidly and I'm excited to have you on board with me.
