Audubon Society of Ohio

ASO provides educational monthly field trips designed to give hands-on experiences in the natural world. In addition to field trips, we host nine monthly evening programs per year (skipping July, August and December), devoted to topics relating to natural history and conservation.

Cincinnati Dry Dredgers

The Dry Dredgers is an association of amateur geologists dedicated to the knowledge and enjoyment of fossils. The Society was founded in 1942 and continues to bring together those interested in the life of prehistoric times. Its aim is to stimulate interest in geology, to encourage the collection and identification of fossils, and to participate in field trips and exhibitions.

Cornell Lab of Ornithology

Each day, bird watchers report tens of thousands of bird observations to citizen-science projects at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, contributing to the world’s most dynamic and powerful source of information on birds.

Science on Tap

We offer a free event every month at a local pub. A working scientist shares information with an audience of science advocates and answers their questions. There are also trivia questions and door prizes.

Scientific American Citizen Science

Help make science happen by volunteering for a real research project.

Tri-State Science Club

Are you a mad scientist or just a science groupie? Whether you are an expert of science or a novice like me, if you love science then this is the group for you!! This group is for people who love science, embrace science, find science interesting or simply want to learn more about their world.


The Zooniverse is the world’s largest and most popular platform for people-powered research. This research is made possible by volunteers—hundreds of thousands of people around the world who come together to assist professional researchers. Our goal is to enable research that would not be possible, or practical, otherwise. Zooniverse research results in new discoveries, datasets useful to the wider research community, and many publications.
