Citizen Science

Everyday people and researchers work on scientific studies collaboratively to benefit the preservation of natural habitat and animal species at the 13 Oakland County parks. Participants gather information about birds, water quality, invasive species, butterflies and more. Citizen science allows the public to assist scientists' understanding of the complexities of nature. 

Citizen science and stewardship programs at Oakland County Parks and Recreation have included Nest Watch and Feeder Watch programs; environmental surveys and counts; park and river stewardship efforts; Stream Leaders and various other educational programs.

Topics, prices and age requirements vary. Call 248-858-0916 for more information and registration.
