Two fun volunteer gatherings this year in St. George and Salt Lake City! We really enjoyed having the picnics to chat with our volunteers in a casual setting to get to know you better. We will plan to keep doing these throughout the years and will add new locations. Thanks to Eli for getting them organized and having delicious food!

The Water Quality Extension has teamed up with the Division of Water Quality to deploy scopes and test kits - used to verify potential algal blooms - at extension offices statewide. Citizens, volunteers and others may bring samples to the scopes to be tested for HAB presence. We're recruiting volunteers to use these scopes to analyze samples. We recommend both attending the online seminar - hosted by NOAA - and an in person training.
