Join us in these fun fall activitiesSeptember 13, 2012 2 Comments
Fall is on the horizon and with it come many opportunities to learn more about island wildlife and ecosystems. You can help us discover more about the mysteries of island nature by joining one of these volunteer science projects or programs. These events and projects are also a great way to meet some amazingly cool folks and become a part of the Vashon naturalist community.
If you are interested in any of the following opportunities email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
- Salmonwatchers are needed to watch our creeks from October 1st-December 31st.
- Land Trust Intro tours: learn more about conservation and restoration efforts by joining Vashon Nature Center Director and Vashon Maury Land Trust Board Member Bianca Perla at the Land Trust intro tour of Singer Farm on Saturday September 15th. http://www.vashonlandtrust.org/eventsproperty-tours/
- Cruise! The Ocean Inquiry project is offering a 1-day cruise on September 23rd. On the cruise you will help a crew of oceanographers measure water quality, nutrients, plankton, and sediment of local Puget Sound waters. They will also send divers down at certain points with a marine video camera so you can see what's living in the deep around you.
- MusselWatch: Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife is launching a mussel watch program to test the quality of Vashon's shoreline waters. Interested in helping place and retrieve mussels at certain island tideland locations?
Email: email@example.com for more information about these and other volunteer science opportunities including projects on notable trees, benthic invertebrate monitoring in local streams, annual bioblitz events and more!
Have a wonderful, nature-filled fall everyone!
