- 2:00 PM
Location: ORCA's Center for Citizen Science Center
ORCA's nine Living Shorelines in Indian River County are constructed ofbreakwaters made from bagged, fossilized shell and hundreds of native shorelineplants. All of our Living Shorelines require quarterly monitoring. Teams of Citizen Scientists are trained tocollect biological, chemical, and physical data near the breakwaters andadjacent shorelines. Most of ORCA's Living Shorelines require a boat formonitoring. Citizen Scientists will also be trained to compile, analyze, andreport data to ORCA.
