Description

Do you love collecting data with your toes in the sand? This data is used to inform beach management decisions at the local and state level. Beach profiling is a simple surveying technique used to measure changes in the contour of the monitored beach. Monitoring takes place once each month for approximately 2-3 hours.  Volunteers monitor all year. Ideally volunteers would be able to commit to 7-8 monitoring dates per year.
