Mission & Vision

The mission of Rocky Mountain Citizen Science  is to bring together the practitioners of citizen science — scientists, program directors, funders, educators and volunteers — in the Rocky Mountain region, to promote public participation in scientific research through shared best practices, creative dialogue, and the promotion of good citizen science projects. 

Our vision is to create a community, and a society, where all citizens are empowered to use the tools of science to become advocates for themselves and the enviroment.
