CWMN is held once a month from May to October and takes place in the early morning. We’re looking for volunteers who might be interested in taking over a sampling location for the duration of the season or for those that would be willing to act as “fill-in” samplers for people who cannot make one of their sampling dates. The 2016 days for CWMN this year will be on Thursdays, and the specific dates are listed below.


2016 CWMN Dates

If interested, please email Meghan Rauber, our Field Sampling Coordinator, at meghan@neponset.org. There will be sampling training sessions held toward the end of April for new volunteers. Come enjoy the outdoors while helping to contribute to the health of the Neponset watershed!
