Estero Bay Aquatic Preserve is looking for dedicated volunteers to sample water quality in Estero Bay monthly. This is part of a long-term citizen science program called the Charlotte Harbor Estuaries Volunteer Water Quality Monitoring Network
Volunteers learn about water sampling and contribute to a long-term dataset used by natural resource managers throughout Florida. Volunteers are expected to attend an initial training, sample at sunrise on the first Monday of each month and attend biannual refresher training.
There are opportunities to sample from land or by water, seasonally or year-round. All sampling equipment (except boats) is provided.
