We Love Our Citizen Scientists!

It's Volunteer Appreciation Week and I just want you to know that even though we appreciate you ALL YEAR, this week you are extra appreciated. I've been serving as your Citizen Science Coordinator since October and am in awe of your passion and dedication to the diversity of projects and puzzles we tackle.

This week I will be in Vancouver, BC, at the Salish Sea Ecosystem Conference, representing the Port Townsend Marine Science Center and talking about our Citizen Science work. It is remarkable how much a small group of dedicated community members can accomplish! I hope to bring back many more ideas and suggestions of things we can do to contribute to the greater body of knowledge and action that can truly help us care for the treasure that is our Salish Sea.

If you're interesting in joining some of these citizen-science opportunities, take a look at our website calendar for upcoming trainings and events. If you're new to volunteering with us, be sure to attend our upcoming orientation on April 20, from 4-6 pm in the Natural History Exhibit!

Thank you all so very much for your hard work and commitment to PTMSC and the conservation of the Salish Sea.
