Volunteer Opportunity

Volunteer to take water quality samples!

A partner of GBF on water quality, the Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve (GBBR) has identified a need for more volunteers in monitoring nutrients along eastern Georgian Bay. Nutrient monitoring refers to total phosphorus (TP) monitoring, as it is the nutrient that controls the growth of algae and most living biota in the aquatic environment. In order to collect TP in a single database, cottagers and associations are encouraged to get involved in the provincial Lake Partner Program (LPP) to help monitor the health of their waterbody. To date, there are 600 volunteers sampling at over 800 sites; there are at least 40 additional sites that could help scientific understanding of nutrients in eastern Georgian Bay. If your association has questions or would like further information, please contact David Bywater, program coordinator at conservation@gbbr.ca or 705.774.0978.
