The Habitat Network is a citizen science project designed to cultivate a richer understanding of wildlife habitat, for both professional scientists and people concerned with their local environments. The Habitat Network collects data by asking individuals across the country to literally draw maps of their backyards, parks, farms, favorite birding locations, schools, and gardens.
Habitat Network is also the world’s first interactive citizen scientist social network. When you join you are instantly connected to the work of like-minded individuals in your neighborhood, and across the country. Together you can become a conservation community focused on sharing strategies, maps, and successes to build more wildlife habitat.
This is a valuable resource for those that want to connect educational programming at their garden to avid birders and children interested in learning more about which birds in their region are attracted to which plants, and the role they play in an ecosystem.
