WHO'S YOUR SCIENTIST?

Nantucket has a wealth of scientists, researchers and naturalists studying the variety of biodiversity within Nantucket's natural world. Every other year during even years, NBI hosts a weekend where you can connect with these scientists and participate in our research in the field.

The Citizen Science Weekend allows anyone to join our island scientists and guest researchers from off-island scientists on a variety of field trips from ecological field trips, to invasive species management to research data collection! You can have a chance to learn about the island’s rare or invasive plants, birds, insects, beach invertebrates, turtles, snakes, trees and marine life.

Admission to all events is free and open to everyone! Pre-registration is required as some events have limited capacity.
