Sorry – we’ve had to delay the start of our new volunteer training and the 2023 monitoring season. We’ll  post new information once it is fully available. But expect new volunteer training in late April, early May with first water collections in late May/June. Details soon.


RI Department of Environmental Management has posted updated maps of sites with aquatic invasive plants and Asian clams.


While we will be in-person for new volunteer  field training in 2023, classroom training will likely be virtual and field training resources are available on our our classroom page or the field training page.  They are great resources for anyone thinking about volunteering or just wanting to see the techniques again! Know someone who might be interested in becoming a volunteer next season? These resources might be a good place for them to learn more.
