Kriste Lindberg: Citizen Scientists

Play

Environmental scientists who need to gather a lot of information about natural resources often get help from citizen scientists, or members of the general public with basic training in gathering environmental data. One of the largest and most famous examples of citizen science is the annual assessment of bird populations organized every year by the Audobon Society. Now the Bloomington Parks Department has started a program that offers training in citizen scientists skills to the general public. WFHB correspondent Dan Young speaks with Kriste Lindberg from the Parks Department for this WFHB feature exclusive, courtesy of EcoReport.
