Seabird Ecological Assessment Network (SEANET) Seabird Survey
You will learn to identify beached shore birds and record information about these birds and the local conditions while performing a beach survey that provides essential information to researchers about the health of the marine environment.
Meet at the Center Hill Preserve Climate and Nature Center for a brief training session. Then walk the beach at the Center Hill Preserve with SEMPBA SEANET volunteers searching for birds. Collect a variety of data, including the presence of any beached (i.e., dead) seabirds. The information we collect will be submitted to SEANET researchers at Tufts Center for Conservation Medicine and the Lloyd Center for Environmental Studies in Massachusetts. Survey, clipboard and writing utensils provided.

Center Hill Pond Research
Center Hill Pond—a small freshwater pond just yards from the ocean - is being directly impacted by sea level rise and development. You could be part of a new initiative to explore this pond and understand which processes are impacting it! Aid SEMPBA volunteers in surveying the pond, collecting water samples for quality testing, turbidity, etc., along the pond shore and trips in R.V. Cooter (a small 2-3 person boat) on the Center Hill Pond. Volunteers will be involved in processing data from the pond for the Town of Plymouth Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness Program (MVP) project and for the Town of Plymouth Department of Marine and Environmental Affairs. Survey equipment, waders and life jackets provided.

-A bag for all your belongings 
-Water or something else to drink
-Shoes for beach-walking and trail through the woods
-Spare socks / shoes if they get wet or muddy
