Nabbing Nitrogen: A Clean Water Act Day of Action

Join us to Nab Nitrogen in Portland Harbor, on Sunday morning, August 7! You will help us collect water samples around the Harbor to create a snapshot of nitrogen conditions and we need your help.

Picture yourself with 100+ other community members collecting simultaneous water samples on the water and along the shores of greater Portland Harbor, as well as on and around Little Diamond, Cushing, and Peaks Islands. We will scoop water into jars at 9:30 am from beaches, docks, piers, and all kinds of boats, from those we paddle to those we power. The samples we collect will be analyzed for total nitrogen and used to create a map of nitrogen levels. This data helps Friends advocate to reduce nitrogen pollution. 

Email volunteer [at] cascobay [dot] org to let us know you are interested in joining our day of action.
