GETTING YOUR PROJECT OFF THE GROUND
March 13th, 2019
8:30 am - 4:30 pm
This interactive full-day workshop helped CSA attendees answer the question, "How do I grow my idea into a funded project?" Workshop participants came in with projects that ranged from seedlings to forests, and throughout the day learned how to navigate the citizen science federal funding space, discovered how experts pieced their funding together in different ways to see their project through, and had the opportunity to network and share ideas with others.
