Farm Bill 10007 Highlights - Conduct targeted outreach and education

Public schools are using the Citizen Scientist program curricula as part of new State middle school science standards.

The Department of Plant Industry at Clemson University used Farm Bill funding to create Citizen Scientists in the Junior Invasive Inspectors Program. This initiative teaches middle school youth to conduct surveys for invasive forest pests. Students learn the identification and biology of trees and insects as well as the importance of invasive biology. Citizen Scientists are rewarded for continued survey work and pest reporting on the Junior Invasives Web site.
