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.
