Are you partnering with volunteers for scientific data collection, and feel your citizen science program needs an infusion of resources to help re-engage your volunteers? Maybe volunteer dynamics have shifted or the momentum of your group has faded? Or maybe you are seeking some best practices to know how to find and sustain volunteers over time? If so, then this webinar is for you.
Volunteer recruitment and engagement are vital tools to keeping your community based science projects thriving. Periodically, it is important to evaluate your program and review whether you are implementing the best practices for volunteer retention. This 60-minute webinar will facilitate a volunteer management reflection process, expose participants to the latest volunteer recruitment/retention literature, and provide tips and strategies.  Participants will leave with tools that they can start implementing right away.
