The Somes-Meynell Wildlife Sanctuary’s “Citizen Science Corps” (CSC) program links volunteer citizen “scientists” with environmental research and monitoring projects in their own communities.  Volunteer Citizen Scientists will receive background education and training in project procedures to ensure consistency and accuracy in data collection.

CSC volunteers can participate in many of the Sanctuary’s ongoing environmental research and monitoring projects, including:

  • MDI Loon Monitoring Project
  • Somesville Fish Passage Restoration Project
  • Long Pond Courtesy Boat Inspection Program
  • Ongoing water quality monitoring on Somes Pond

Become a Citizen Scientist and join our corps of volunteers conducting environmental research and monitoring on Mount Desert Island!
