Are you an aspiring scientist? Do you love learning about the natural world and want to help mitigate the environmental damage humans cause? Join us at the Louisville Zoo as we share information about how you can get involved with Citizen Science! Also called community science, citizen science is the collective term for public involvement in scientific research. It can be anything from counting birds to sampling air quality to identifying images caught by wildlife cameras! The projects we will explore in this program relate to Louisville Zoo conservation initiatives while also encouraging you (and your loved ones) to explore the outdoors.

Earth Month is also Citizen Science Month! Join us and spend some time learning about the modern environmental movement and how you can get involved in cleaning up the planet right here in Louisville. We will hear from our friends at Brightside about their work cleaning up our community and from your zoo on how reusing and recycling can help animals around the world!
