Introduction to Living Shoreline Monitoring & Field Sampling Day

Saturday, Jan 30, 2021 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Location: ORCA's Center for Citizen Science Center

Category: Community


ORCA's nine Living Shorelines in Indian River County are constructed of breakwaters made from bagged, fossilized shell and hundreds of native shoreline plants. All of our Living Shorelines require quarterly monitoring. Teams of Citizen Scientists are trained to collect biological, chemical, and physical data near the breakwaters and adjacent shorelines. Most of ORCA's Living Shorelines require a boat for monitoring. Citizen Scientists will also be trained to compile, analyze, and report data to ORCA.
