Not sure I’m in the right spot here but maybe someone will direct me to the correct area if I am speaking out of turn at this site.
My wife and I volunteer for a number of citizen science projects as do all or most of the others at this site. I am a retired science teacher. I am debating whether to join CSA. My questions about dues paying revolve around the idea “How will being part of this group help us expand and improve our involvement in citizen science.” Generally I’ve felt that some/most of the articles I’ve read so far are too abstract for my blood. Looking for an organization that broadens my idea of what I can do.
The kind of questions we have: “What projects are out there, where are they, what kind of commitment required…” aren’t obvious on this site to me.
Personally I’d like to see experiences in science volunteering that, if appropriate, then link to how others might become involved.
As an example, we volunteer with the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory, in the SF Bay Area. A short piece over what we do, when we do it, how we do it and what we have gained might be useful. It could easily end with how others might become involved. The professional development, in this case, is excellent and provided to folks who volunteer.
