Last month, the National Advisory Council on Environmental Policy and Technology (NACEPT), an EPA advisory council, transmitted a report to EPA titled Environmental Protection Belongs to the Public: A Vision for Citizen Science at EPA outlining thirteen specific recommendations for EPA. (Learn more about the report, its genesis, and NACEPT, in this post, coauthored byShannon Dosemagen, Public Lab and Alison Parker, ORISE Fellow hosted by EPA.)

In NACPET @EPA report, what are key take-home messages abt #CitizenScience?

How can @EPA best support #CitizenScience (big data) & #CommunityScience (small data)?

How can #CitizenScience support @EPA_research? How can #CitSci support regulatory role of @EPA?
