Coastal Research Volunteers ("CRV") is a citizen science program based at the University of New Hampshire that engages community members in local coastal research through meaningful science and stewardship volunteer opportunities in New Hampshire and neighboring coastal areas. Science projects take place in all seasons of the year, and in the past have included oyster restoration, beach grass plantings, eel monitoring, green crab hunts, beach profiling, microplastics collection, and water quality monitoring in streams.

How to Participate:  Training is offered for all projects, and opportunities are posted through the Nature Groupie calendar. To receive email notices of upcoming volunteer opportunities with Coastal Research Volunteers, contact Wells Costello, Wellsley.Costello@unh.edu or call 603-862-6707.
