ℹ️ More about the reports…

Earthwise Aware (EwA) runs a field naturalist community science program that advances biodiversity and climate research while promoting ecological ethics and the democratization of science.

While the EwA reports compile the results of and data collected from a year’s worth of EwA fieldwork, they are not purely data-driven reports. In addition to reporting those results, they document EwA’s developmental and operational process. They summarize EwA‘s field projects and general findings, as well as explain EwA’s field methods and how to access our data for further analysis. The audience for these reports is varied and comprised of our citizen scientists and volunteers, our partners and collaborators, the cities where our programs are located, and the various non-profit and governmental organizations with whom we work.
