Participant Resources for Climate Watch

Here are the resources and tools you need to participate in Climate Watch in your area.

There are two potential roles for people interested in volunteering with the Climate Watch project: participant and coordinator. This page provides information for participants.

Climate Watch Participant: Volunteers who complete Climate Watch counts in collaboration with their group’s Climate Watch coordinator. Participants serve a critical role, collecting data that will validate the current projections of Audubon’s climate models. Participants will gain valuable monitoring and data entry skills, ensuring that trends from monitored species will be represented in the national analysis.
