The Community Science Lab was created to support the work conducted by the Center for the Study of Land, Air, and Water. Built on the success of the Bard Water Lab and its partnership with the Saw Kill Watershed Community, CSL expands the Center’s reach by allowing us to refocus our work on projects that address the interconnectedness of land, air, water, and communities. The work of the Bard Water Lab and its goal of bringing water science to water communities continues through the Saw Kill Monitoring Program, as a CSL project.
Community Science Coalition
An initiative of the Open Society University Network (OSUN).
In addition to supporting the Center for the Study of Land, Air, and Water, the lab supports the OSUN Community Science Coalition, an international network working to bridge the gaps between climate change, academic institutions, and the equitable management of shared natural resources. The Community Science Lab will serve as the coalition's core lab facility, conducting environmental testing in response to community concerns. The data generated will be used to evaluate local climate impacts and help inform decision makers.
Real issues. Real solutions. Real change.
