The NCHC-sponsored Partners in the Parks adventure to Glacier National Park allowed ten honors students to serve the park through a citizen science research project involving biological monitoring in the wilderness. We assessed the benefit of citizen science service learning to students’ experiences using pre- and post-adventure surveys and interviews.
