Join a corps of nearly two dozen concerned and dedicated Cape Codders who spend a few hours each week from May through October taking water samples at tidal stations near their homes around the entire perimeter of Cape Cod Bay. As a volunteer sampler in this long-running study, you will be contributing vital data to our local governments and resource managers that they use in policymaking to conserve and protect the crown jewel of our waters.
Training at our lab in Provincetown and equipment provided. Some of our citizen scientists have been with us for a decade, so we can assure you the work is rewarding! At present we need people in Sandwich, Yarmouth, Wellfleet and Provincetown. Sampling can be easily done by individuals, although we also have spouses and partners who sample together. All are welcome. You may read more about the program by visiting www.coastalstudies.org/cape-cod-bay-monitoring-program/
