Citizen science is any project where volunteers partner with scientists to answer real-world questions. Join us as we celebrate the first ever Zionsville Citizen Science Day. Odds are there is a citizen science project that coincides with a hobby, interest, or curiosity that you may have. The fields that citizen science advances are diverse, and for many projects you don't have to go farther than their own backyards to contribute!

iNaturalist is an online social network of people who help each other learn about nature. You can use it to record your own observations, get help with identifications, and collaborate with others. Since 2017, Zionsville Parks has been using iNaturalist to collect information on the plants and animals found in our parks. Park Naturalist Mindy Murdock will run you through the steps to set up your own iNaturalist account as we explore and collect date in the Zion Nature Sanctuary. You will need to bring a smartphone, iPad or other internet ready electronic device.
