The Coastal Watershed Council’s (CWC) community-based Snapshot Day Event presents our 14th annual “snapshot” view of the health of the streams that flow into the Monterey Bay. Partnering with the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary and hundreds of trained volunteers, we systematically sample the stream water throughout the central coast of California.
CWC and MBNMS staff will train you and put you on fun teams to record valuable water quality data such as pH, dissolved oxygen, electrical conductivity and transparency. You'll also pick up trash and collect water samples for laboratory analysis of bacteria indiciators and nutrients like nitrate and phosphorus.
Learn more about why each of these indicators of watershed health is important, and be a part of this growing movement. Get some friends or family members and make it a fun day of caring for your environment. Join CWC and the MBNMS on Saturday, May 4th!
