ABSTRACT. Citizen science can be incredibly effective for wildlife research and management, but building and maintaining a citizen science project can be intimidating for those who don’t have experience in that arena. A myriad of local, national, and global resources exists to help project leaders create a successful citizen science project. The field of citizen science offers professional societies, regional networks, academic journals, how-to-guides, listservs, and networking opportunities, all of which are extremely beneficial in planning and implementing a project. Resources like data collection portals, equipment lending libraries, free marketing platforms, and funding opportunities can assist with the day-to-day logistics of running a project. This presentation will cover the many tools and resources, including regional offerings, that are available to people planning and managing a citizen science project.
