North SD County Watershed Monitoring: One Year In
by Karen Wytmans, Paige DeCino and MaryAnn Viney
Come learn about the North San Diego County Water Monitoring Program, a citizen science group founded in April 2019. The NSDCWMP is picking up where the San Diego Coastkeeper left off to sample and monitor pollution and impaired waterways in North San Diego County. We will describe the goals of the organization, how we got started, and how we are measuring water quality of the 3 Carlsbad watersheds. 
 
This program is presented by Karen Wytmans, Paige DeCino and MaryAnn Viney.
