What a year we saw with 2017! Staying focused on the positive, it was a great year for citizen science. Here are just a few call-outs but all citizen scientists should immediately pat themselves on the back! We CAN do it and have fun at the same time. This year, the Citizen Science Association hosted its annual meeting right here in the Twin Cities (from where we are writing) with hundreds of participants gathering to discuss a wide range of topics in our field. We look forward to the next meeting in Raleigh NC March 12-18, 2019! Zooniverse saw the launch of its 100th project appropriately celebrating its 10th year anniversary on July 12, 2017 while this year marks the 118th Audubon Christmas Bird Count. Do something citizen sciency this holiday and participate! And last but not least – Citizen Science Today brought attention in 2017 to 143 articles from across the web related to citizen science. We encourage you to explore the archives this month while we rest up and get ready for a new year. Have a good one! –LFF & AWA–
