Project Picture Post is part of the Digital Earth Watch network, which monitors the health of vegetation using digital photography. This citizen science endeavor has seen a lack of participation over the past several years. The goal of our project was to identify and implement strategies for increasing participation in citizen science, focusing on Project Picture Post at the Blue Hill Observatory and Science Center. We accomplished this goal through extensive interaction with citizen science experts and potential participants and by testing specifically-designed promotional material. By implementing our recommendations, citizen science programs such as Project Picture Post will be able to increase volunteer participation.
