Community science programs engage people from the general public as volunteers in scientific research projects through the collection of ecologic information. 

Corkscrew's current community science programs are set up to promote environmental awareness and actively engage the public in the collection of data on bird and butterfly species in and near the Sanctuary.  The information collected by our community scientists is used to improve local and national knowledge of bird and butterfly distribution and population trends.  Information collected can also be incorporated into natural resource management plans.

A statewide Audubon program  Audubon EagleWatch  is seeking volunteers to monitor Bald Eagle nests for the 2017-2018 breeding season. As a volunteer, you’ll be assigned to monitor one or more eagle nests in your vicinity. A new volunteer training will be held in the classroom at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary on Saturday, August 19, 2017 from 10:00am until 12:00 noon.  

For more information and to register for these community science programs, please see below.
