Surfrider Water Quality Stewardship Intern Announcement:
It’s that time of year again! NWS Surfrider is looking for motivated interns to help collect water quality samples and educate the public on water quality issues at Larrabee State Park for the summer of 2014. This internship is a great experience for those looking to be outside and learn about marine environmental education, outreach, policy, and science and has a lot of potential to expand to other related Surfrider projects.
Our monthly chapter meeting is set for Monday, March 23rd, at ReSources kicking off at 6pm. Don’t miss out on the Comp Plan Road Show at 7 PM to help envision what our precious water resources will look like as Whatcom County continues to grow! We have surf films and a guest speaker lined up, more details in the link below!
We are transitioning to a bi-monthly meeting format with plans to host guest speakers at future chapter meetings so there will be no February chapter meeting. Stay tuned for more info and we hope to see you at the March one!
