Coast Watchers are citizen scientists trained to observe the coast and record coastal environmental data. Volunteers are asked to monitor the coast once per week from May to October, essentially becoming the “eyes and ears” of the lakeshore.
Applications for the 2021 monitoring season are now closed, however if you would like to be contacted for the 2022 program please fill out the application.
The Fundraising Committee is composed of 5-7 members who directly contribute to our ability to protect Lake Huron by increasing our organizational resources and supporting our important conservation programs.
