In conjunction with the White House forum, “Open Science and Innovation: Of the People, By the People, For the People,” we are pleased to announce efforts of the Citizen Science Association (CSA) to coordinate a nationwide Citizen Science Day.
With support from SciStarter and in partnership with numerous national organizations, CSA will provide planning resources and promotional materials for sites around the country to host events to bring attention to citizen science impacts and participation opportunities.
A major celebration will be held on April 16th, 2016, in conjunction with the National Science & Engineering Festival in Washington, DC.

- Zoos hosting a series of guest speakers addressing wildlife-related project research;
- Parks conducting a bioblitz;
