UPDATE: Thanks to all for making it a successful day!
Dear Harbor Friends,
If you get lost, go to the Triassic Playground (http://mapofplay.kaboom.org/playspaces/4714) by Meadow Lake for information and directions to our sign up table.
We encourage university students, schools, community groups, houses of worship, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and other interested parties to partner with us as volunteers and participants. We’re especially interested in water monitoring, habitat projects, and cleanups.
HarborLAB intern Erik Yax Garcia samples water for quality testing each week. Results are published here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AhvspccU_-qrdFpQRWY1cWN6d0pGdTJndk5hdE5mX0E&usp=sharing#gid=0
If bacteria counts are high (red zone), we suspend programming. We use canoes to minimize water contact as a precaution for other days, even though the red/yellow/green coding refers to swimming conditions. This week the water tested in the “green” zone and we’re assured by parks officials that no sewage pours into the lake. We opt for canoes over sit-on-top kayaks as an added caution.
