Since 2004, a local coalition of stakeholders has held several Citizen Science Week workshops and public programs in the Riverside area.
|• These events
received an enthusiastic
response from the
community and around the nation.
assistance was generated
with the University of California, the Riverside-Corona Resource Conservation District, and the National Museum of Natural History (Smithsonian Institution).
The City of Riverside has received the following grants to help move the citizen science program forward, beyond the previous formats:
|• National Park Service Grant - technical assistance from the Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance Program.|
|• Proposition 84-supported Nature Education Facilities Program grant from California State Parks - $780,000 to create a nature center at Sycamore Canyon Wilderness Park.|
The National Park Service RTCA technical assistance grant has brought together the collaborating agencies into a working group: the Riverside Metropolitan Museum, the University of California at Riverside, the Riverside-Corona Resource Conservation District, the City of Riverside Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services, and the National Museum of Natural History (Smithsonian Institution). Together we will:
|• Create a vision and mission for a citizen science program, for Riverside and its sphere of influence.|
|• Work together to share resources and identify all the needs of the program.|
|• Work on strategic plan and implementation plans for the program.|
|• Identify a partnership model that builds on the strengths of all the partners, and builds the capacity for the expansion of our mission.|
