Sept 9 – Volunteer Pathogens Monitoring
September 9, 2021 @ 7:30 am - 3:00 pm
Our Summer 2021 Raritan monitoring team welcomes volunteer pathogens monitors to join us in the field for weekly field assessments and sampling. We absolutely cannot do this work without our *trained* volunteers!!
Due to COVID, this Summer we have a limited number of volunteer slots every week (four maximum).
We meet Thursday mornings between 7:45-8am at our first sampling site, Riverside Park in Piscataway.
The address for our first site is: 430 River Rd, Piscataway, NJ 08854.
We typically wrap up monitoring at our last site in Perth Amboy by 1 PM, and then continue on to drop off the samples at the IEC lab in Brooklyn. This year we especially welcome assistance from volunteers willing to drive our samples to the lab in Brooklyn!
We have waders in various sizes, so no need to bring your own. HOWEVER – be sure you have shoes that you don’t mind getting muddy/wet.
You will want to bring water/fluids to stay hydrated throughout the day.
If we are doing well time-wise we will stop for pizza (or similar) for lunch. Please do remember to bring along snacks for fuel just in case.
You will need sunscreen, long sleeves/pants for sun protection, and a hat.
