April is Citizen Science Month.  The NNLM and Scistarter have paired up at https://scistarter.org/nlm to bring Citizen Science Projects to your library and your home.  There many projects that can be done outside while practicing social distancing or in the home.  When taking a walk maybe you would want to be a part of the Debris Tracker, or play online games such Stall Catchers or indoor science experiments such as Crowd the Tap.

Listed below are links for local citizen science projects that can be found in each New England State.  Get inspired and have fun exploring your environment and your health.
