Extension volunteers change lives
Extension partners with the Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center to train citizen scientist volunteers.
Every day, in every county, Extension volunteers put their passions to work to create a stronger Minnesota. Led and supported by Extension faculty and staff, they give their time and energy to help their communities. Volunteers share research and participate in citizen science through these programs and other opportunities:
- 4-H Youth Development
- Aquatic Invasive Species Detectors and Trackers
- Cooking Matters® Minnesota
- Forest Pest First Detectors
- Master Gardener
- Master Naturalist
- Minnesota Bee Atlas
- Wasp Watchers
