Volunteers Needed to Collect Storm Water Samples this Winter

With the arrival of the rainy season, the Baykeeper staff has been busy collecting samples of storm water to test for pollution. And we need volunteers who can help! During the rainy season, pollutants from streets, homes, parking lots, commercial centers and industrial sites all get washed into storm drains and creeks that empty into the Bay – so it's a key time to collect samples from potential pollution sites.

Baykeeper is looking for volunteers to help us collect water samples on land and on the Bay. We especially need individuals who can commit to participating throughout the rainy season and who can be available on short notice when heavy rains hit. If you fit that bill, please contact Jason Flanders, Staff Attorney, at or 415-856-0444 x106 to sign up and receive training.
