Outdoor Adventure Citizen Science Project Links
As I promised, after my recent conversation with Briana, U of O. Outdoor program, here are a few links to interesting Outdoor Adventure type of Citizen Science web sites that contain lots of example projects. As time permits I will add more specific projects. Readers are welcome to suggest interesting projects too.

I believe that many common adventure projects initiated at outdoor programs in the past contained elements of citizen science and it is probable that many former participants continue to engage in some form of community involvement &/or citizen science in their normal lives. It would be interesting to start a collaborative map and invite people to contribute to it via the U. of O. Outdoor Program outreach efforts. I can imagine that some of the other Outdoor Programs, especially in the West would be interested in this idea as well.
