You have received this e-newsletter from the California Coastal Coalition (CalCoast™), a non-profit advocacy group comprised of 35 coastal cities; five counties; SANDAG, BEACON and SCAG; private sector partners and NGO's, committed to protecting and restoring California's coastline through beach sand restoration, increasing the flow of natural sediment, wetlands recovery, improved water quality, watershed management and the reduction of marine debris and plastic pollution. When possible, we try to post articles that are not protected by pay walls.

NWQMC Webinar Series: Diverse Uses of Volunteer Water-Quality Data by States
 
There are diverse uses of volunteer monitoring data. Communities often use data on local levels to identify sites for restoration or screen sites for potential pollution. But how do states use volunteer data? How are volunteer data integrated to help answer state water quality questions? This webinar will explore state data use in Indiana, Michigan, and Virginia and the key building blocks to facilitate data use. If you are interested in data uses within California please click here and here for our latest Citizen Science & Watershed Stewardship Webinar Series.
