As a research hub and an incredibly diverse ecological treasure, San Diego is home to many citizen science projects and programs. The San Diego Citizen Science Expo is an event to encourage San Diegans to explore the diverse research projects that need public support. Explore the science happening in San Diego and find out how you can contribute to science doing things you already enjoy!

The San Diego Citizen Science Expo will be held on Citizen Science Day: April 13th, 2019. The list of participating projects is still growing, but the projects that have already confirmed are below.
