Elwha river 1

On August 25th the US National park service turns 100! Celebrate by volunteering, via Discover

The park system provides many excellent citizen science opportunities to visitors.
Below, you’ll find five great national park projects.

Geoscientists in the Parks:
Students and others with natural resource experiences are needed to assist the National Parks with mapping, monitoring, and other research tasks. Locations can be found across the United States.

Common Loon Citizen Science Project at Glacier National Park:
Volunteers are needed in Glacier National Park in Montana to monitor for common loons. The data are used to protect these beautiful birds.

Glacial National Park Invasive Plants:
With more than 700 miles of hiking trails, this park needs volunteers to monitor for invasive plants. With information on location and abundance of invasives, park staff can improve their management strategy.
