EPA Publishes Vision for Participatory Science

The CMC is excited to see that EPA just published its vision for the use of participatory science in EPA work! This vision accomplishes two goals: first shifts the language from community and citizen science to participatory science, a big milestone to increase inclusivity in the field, and second outlines EPA’s planned actions for public engagement in science and monitoring activities. They also released this Story Map that highlights the use of participatory science and current projects, the CMC is one of the highlighted projects under the Community-based Water Quality Monitoring section. Check out these great resources!
