Secchi Dip-in encourages citizen monitoring this summer

A monitoring initiative named for Secchi disks encourages people across the world to test the water nearby from the end of June through mid-July. It’s called the Secchi Dip-in and its organizers want anyone with the means to test their local water to do so and report back.  The database is open to contributions from June 29 through July 21. Volunteers, monitoring groups and professionals alike can contribute data to the Secchi Dip-in database.  Turbidity data is the main information Secchi Dip-in organizers want to see, but they won’t turn down any kind of water quality data people contribute. They encourage interested environmentalists to go out with someone who is experienced in testing for water quality to ensure data is accurate.

Narragansett Nature: Remote NERR is a leader in salt marsh stressor studies, crab studies and contributions to Rhode Island environmental policies

Unique among the 29 National Estuarine Research Reserves (NERRS), Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NBNERR ) is made up of four islands: Prudence, Patience, Hope and Dyer. Protecting about 4,400 acres of land and water, NBNERR is a great place to see a variety of coastal habitats. There are upland maritime forests, coastal pine barrens, sandy beaches, cobble shorelines, salt marshes and open grasslands. NBNERR also has excellent hiking, fishing, clamming and bird watching. “If you want to see us, though, you’ll need to hop on a ferry,” says Bob Stankelis , NBNERR Reserve Manager. “Or you’ll have to take a boat. We’re not that easy to get to. But to be honest, that’s one of the big things residents here like about it: its remoteness.
