CLONet Workshop

Tuesday, November 17, 2020
12 p.m. – 2 p.m.

The Coastal Lakes Observing Network (CLONet) will host its annual workshop on Tuesday, Nov. 17, from 12-2 p.m. Through the CLONet project, Monmouth University School of Science and Urban Coast Institute (UCI) staff and students partner with municipalities and community groups to organize citizen science efforts dedicated to understanding the causes of environmental problems facing Deal Lake, Fletcher Lake, Lake Como, Lake Takanassee, Spring Lake, Silver Lake, Sunset Lake, Sylvan Lake, Wesley Lake and Wreck Pond.

The workshop is an opportunity for CLONet volunteers to share their experiences with fellow citizen scientists and find out what the water quality sampling data they’ve collected to date reveals. New individuals and groups interested in volunteering are welcome to attend.
