The Australian Citizen Science Association (ACSA) was formed to advance citizen science through the sharing of knowledge, collaboration, capacity building, and advocacy.
It was conceived at the Inaugural Citizen Science Workshop hosted by the Queensland Museum in Brisbane on May 6th, 2014. A large number of dedicated volunteers came together and formed working groups to actively develop the structure of ACSA and build awareness of Australian citizen science, both nationally and globally. It's a member-based community that supports, informs, and promotes citizen science. ACSA membership is open to citizen science project managers, volunteers, or anyone interested in citizen science.
