The Citizen Science for Conservation in Southern California Symposium is accepting applications to present. The symposium is an excellent opportunity for scientists and volunteers to come together to share information and connect for ongoing conservation efforts. Last year, I had the honor of presenting on Citizen Science as Community Service, and I look forward to once again gathering a group of high school students to volunteer for the symposium. Through citizen science, students learn biodiversity and conservation principles in a setting that is social and supportive while still demanding rigor and attention to detail. Students will interact with scientists who are on the cutting edge of conservation work in the urban environment.
