For Researchers


Citizen Science Trips takes Citizen Science to the next level!

We have volunteers who are willing to spend a dedicated 2-4 hours per day for a week or more working on your project at your field site.  You provide the materials, we provide the labour and the training.

 

We are Looking for Field Research Projects

<<Click here>> to propose a Citizen Scientist Trip

boats_featureCitizen Science Trips is looking for field research projects that can use Citizen Scientist volunteers.  Ideally, Citizen Scientists can be used to complement your existing field program – perhaps to collect samples, take photographs, map areas, count species, whatever you need.  There is no perfect project – all projects are perfect for someone!  You tell us how many people you need (minimum 4) and what you want done.  We will figure out a pricing for the trip finalize the details, then your Citizen Scientist volunteers will be on their way to your field site.

Make a proposal for a Citizen Scientist Trip <<click here>> or download the questionnaire in Word or pdf and email it to us.  Note that making the proposal is the beginning of a conversation, not a commitment by either party.  Let’s talk!

Citizen Scientists

Our Citizen Scientists are volunteers who want to participate in scientific field research.  They are eager to help and willing to be trained.

Citizen Science Trips takes care of all the details:  transporting them from the nearest major airport, providing tents or other accommodation, feeding them and making sure they have a good time while helping you with your research.  They are on vacation, so we like to limit their participation to a maximum of 4 hours per day, Monday through Friday.

 

Trip Leads

For Trip Leads_feature
Once your trip is approved, you will be assigned a Trip Lead.  This person will have completed at least one year towards their Masters’ degree in your field of research.  They will work with you to understand the overall objective of your research, and how the tasks to be performed by the Citizen Scientists fit into the picture.  They will then train the volunteers and will be responsible to you for data quality and integrity.

If you have a potential Trip Lead in mind, please let us know – we can accommodate most requests.  Remember, though, Trip Leads work for Citizen Science Trips full time for the trip duration and will not be able to perform other duties.
