2023 Water Reporter Kickoff

With 578 miles of shoreline, Casco Bay is large. It takes many of us working together to keep an eye on this special place we all love. By volunteering as a Water Reporter and taking photos of algal blooms, eelgrass, rising sea levels, pollution, and more, you can help us to improve and protect the health of Casco Bay.

Come and learn about this exciting volunteer program at our 2023 Water Reporter Kickoff! Join us at Winslow Park in Freeport to learn specific ways you can help protect the Bay this summer. Together we will learn marine science basics and connect with fellow Water Reporters keeping an eye on Casco Bay.

After our time at Winslow, we will head to Goodfire Brewing (only 5 minutes away) for snacks and beer. There we will discuss using the Water Reporter app and any other questions you may have. It will also be a time to gather and talk about all things Casco Bay.
