Something in the east, something in the west.

Help keep an eye on the health and abundance of wild turkeys prior to breeding by observing and counting young turkeys in New York state. Or, join biologists in New Hampshire studying the impact of winter on New Hampshire turkeys by reporting any sightings of female turkeys and their young.

In states west of the Appalachian mountains, help researchers take the census of winter Monarch butterflies several mornings during Thanksgiving season. Or, spend one hour on Thanksgiving Day, monitoring winter bird populations within a 15-foot diameter in a location of your choosing.

Of course, there are hundreds of other opportunities to tap your inner scientist during this long weekend. We hope you find your perfect match using the SciStarter Project Finder.

Happy Thanksgiving from the SciStarter team!
