Citizen Science Laboratory at Hacienda La Esperanza Reserve

Citizen scientists birdwatching

At the Hacienda La Esperanza Reserve in Manatí, citizen scientists explore the unique plants, animals and ecology of one of the few coastal forests that exists on the northern coast of Puerto Rico. The Citizen Science program is led by expert scientists and provides hands-on learning volunteer opportunities that contribute towards overall environmental research and restoration, such as native plant reforestation, endangered and threatened species, support and hydrological studies.

To learn more about upcoming Citizen Science projects, click the "Citizen Science" tab on the Hacienda La Esperanza home page at http://www.fideicomiso.org and watch this video http://vimeo.com/21674116.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the National Science Foundation site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
