Sharing Across Scales in Citizen Science and Crowdsourcing

Citizen science and crowdsourcing projects are thriving at every scale, from small, place-based or community efforts, to regional, national, or international projects that span boundaries. For greater impact, projects and initiatives may target a specific scale or work to span multiple scales, such as the national project that recruits local leaders for a place-based initiative, or a small-scale project that expands to new locations.
