VOLUNTEER: Freshwater Resources

When:
June 20, 2017 @ 8:00 am – 10:30 am
2017-06-20T08:00:00-04:00
2017-06-20T10:30:00-04:00
Where:
Bald Head Island
NC 28461
USA

Become a Citizen Scientist (no experience necessary!) and learn more about freshwater resources on a barrier island as we measure water availability! Bald Head Island rests on a freshwater aquifer. As environmental conditions change is it important to monitor freshwater resources to determine relative water availability and water quality. Since Bald Head is a barrier island saltwater intrusion is a concern, regular monitoring will help determine if there is a trend of increasing salinity. To register, please contact Courtney Spears at [email protected] We will meet in the Barrier Island Study Center at 8:00am to begin training and collect our sampling materials – hope to see you there!

NOTE: This activity is weather dependent and will be re-scheduled in the event of precipitation.

The BHI Conservancy eagerly recruits volunteers for its citizen scientist program. Volunteers must be at least twelve years of age (younger scientists may join if joined by an adult guardian) and excited to learn and work in the BHI environment. Whether volunteers have one hour per week or ten plus hours per week to donate, there is a project for everyone. To learn more about this and other projects, please contact Courtney Spears, Coastal Ecologist, at 910-338-0942 or [email protected]
