About

Citizen scientists around the world help the scientific community collect meaningful data to learn about and help protect the environment. In 2013, Harbor WildWatch created a citizen science program to help establish a baseline of biodiversity within the KGI Watershed.

In our program, regular citizens are trained to collect a variety of data on our local beaches, estuaries, and creeks; including:

  • Marine invertebrates & algae
  • Sea Star Wasting
  • Nearshore forage fish
  • Young-of-Year Rockfish (Divers Needed!)
  • Spawning Chum salmon
  • Invasive & non-native plants
  • Water quality
