Citizen Science in Action: Forage Fish & Eelgrass

June 5 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Join us on Wednesday June 5 and participate in our Citizen Science in Action event!

Dianne Sanford from Friends of Forage Fish will be hosting a hands-on sampling session at Friendship park in Sechelt. Come down to learn about what we do when we sample the beach for surf smelt and pacific sand lance eggs.
Dianne has been coordinating forage fish sampling on the lower Sunshine Coast for several decades. She works with volunteer citizen scientists to determine sand lance and surf smelt spawning presence at local beaches, information which was previously undocumented. This information is then submitted to a central database for public information.

We will also discuss the importance of these fishes to all of us, and their connection to eelgrass and orcas.

Wear your gumboots. Citizen science in action!
