2014 Field Season

We've already had a few days out in the field in 2014, continuing to monitor our permanent plots and adding in some exciting kite-camera aerial mapping, which will hopefully allow us to more accurately monitor mussel bed sizes over time. Plus it's just really fun to fly the kite out in the intertidal!

We'll be sending out an email soon with our April date, and have marked some potential dates in May and June as well.

July 13 we're planning on having a large bioblitz-style survey of the reef, looking for any and all species! We'll add updates as the planning progresses.

See you out on the reef!
-Alison & Rebecca
