Community Spotlight: Coastal Action
We had the pleasure of joining Coastal Action for their LaHave River Watershed monitoring route! Coastal Action currently has 15 sites throughout the watershed and has been collecting data since 2007 – that’s 13 years!
Located in Lunenburg County, Coastal Actions’ LaHave monitoring program began in response to growing public concerns over the health and safety of the river. Each year Coastal Action publishes a Water Quality Index to provide the community with a score of each water site’s overall health. 💧
In addition to their Water Quality monitoring, Coastal Action takes on a variety of projects related to environmental concerns on the South Shore!
You can check out coastalaction.org to learn more about the LaHave River Watershed Project and about all programs involving: Climate Change & Education, Watersheds & Water Quality, Species at Risk & Biodiversity Coastal & Marine. And, follow @coastalaction on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for the latest.
