Being a Citizen Scientist – Firefly Count

I love being a citizen scientist. I participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count. I submit eBird checklists!

I signed up to learn how to count pollinators for Project BeeWatch, but my schedule didn’t work for the training.

Last week I started a new citizen science project: Firefly Count. It’s so simple. On lovely summer nights I sit in my backyard and count firefly flashes. I never knew there were so many species of fireflies! Learn more about how to join Firefly Count from Massachusetts Audubon!
