We will be conducting a marine invasive species survey of the rocky intertidal, where we will set up 4 random quadrats and record everything that is living in the square. Then we will do a marine invasive species survey along the water's edge. To learn more about the technique, read our online Monitoring Guide pages 12-17

Learners of all ages are welcome. RSVP required at info@salemsound.org or calling 978-741-7900.
