The movement of citizen science has gathered momentum over the years as scientists and the public recognize that everyone can make meaningful contribution to scientific research. Engaging the public to identify and record plants and animals gives scientists information on an area's environmental health which is just as substantial as natural history museum collections. If we want to maintain our biodiversity, we have to identify and understand our past and present environment.

Come to the May New Mexico PBS Science Café to watch a segment of The Crowd & the Cloud, a four-part PBS documentary, and join a discussion with experts on citizen science, data and the importance of museum specimen collections.


Speake...rs include:
· Deb Novak, Director of Education, New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science
· Ayesha Burdett, Ph.D., Director of Collections & Research, New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science
