Citizen Science Month is observed annually in April to celebrate and promote all things citizen science: amazing discoveries, incredible volunteers, hardworking practitioners, inspiring projects, and anything else citizen science-related! This global celebration includes events hosted by libraries, institutions, community groups, museums, and individuals all around the world.
The National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) has partnered with SciStarter to support Citizen Science Month in April 2020. In 2019, the two organizations worked collaboratively to promote Citizen Science Day in libraries, to increase awareness of citizen science in communities across the nation, and help individuals explore the impact of their environment on health.
In 2020, during the month of April, NNLM and SciStarter seek to host citizen science activities in select cities and would like to engage the NNLM community in this effort.
