There are literally hundreds of research projects being conducted all over the world and scientists are looking for help from everyday citizens. Many of the projects are free to participate, although some require a fee on the part of the participant. Volunteers contribute observations on a particular subject such as birds, gardening, diet, or weather to a specific research project. The information the volunteer collects is sent to trained scientists who then analyze the information.
