Citizen Science at EPA Webinar Archive

On April 15, 2020, EPA Office of Research and Development's Chief Innovation Officer Jay Benforado presented this webinar on Citizen Science. The webinar provided an overview of citizen science at the Agency and showcased several EPA citizen science activities involving partnerships with state, tribal and local governments on a diversity of issues, including 1) monitoring for cyanobacteria in waterbodies, 2) building and operating “real-time,” low-cost water quality sensors in Georgia; 3) demonstration of a new test method for community mapping of radon in Puerto Rico; 4) the Los Angeles Public Library air sensor loan program; and 5) using citizen science to analyze underwater video in the Great Lakes.
