Summary
Abstract: NatureWatch is a suite of community based or "citizen science" monitoring
programs that are administered through a partnership between the Ecological
Monitoring and Assessment Network Coordinating Office (EMAN CO), the Canadian
Nature Federation, and the University of Guelph. Successful volunteer
monitoring programs demonstrate that volunteers can collect valuable data.
Existing monitoring programs such as FrogWatch, IceWatch, PlantWatch and
WormWatch form the founding components of NatureWatch. Others are under
development. These programs encourage schools, community groups, individuals,
naturalists, backyard enthusiasts, Scouts and Guides to engage in the
monitoring of soil, air, water and other aspects of environmental quality.

Monitoring program data are available for download.To engage Canadians in the
expansion of the geographical range of data collected. Also to assess the
observations and give feedback to program participants on changes within the
ecosystems in Canada.
