Volunteer Training: Rockweed Monitoring
May 17 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Help collect data on an important natural resource
Explore our beautiful rocky coastline while collecting data on the seaweed known as rockweed, Ascophyllum nodosum (“Asco”). Rockweed is the dominant species in most of the rocky intertidal zone of Maine and provides a habitat for other intertidal organisms. Rockweed is also harvested in Maine, and sustainable management requires knowledge of the total amount of rockweed throughout the state. Offered by Project ASCO in partnership with Coastal Rivers.
Participants will learn to collect data on rockweed in the rocky intertidal zone to help answer the question, “How much rockweed is there?” The data collected by Project ASCO participants will be analyzed and shared by scientists at Schoodic Institute to inform resource management.
