Get out your smartphone! A photomonitoring station has been installed at Harborside Park, Seabrook, and we need your help. Photomonitoring is when repeat pictures are taken (often by many different people) from the same location to document change overtime.
The Gulf of Maine Council EcoSystem Indicator Partnership is looking to document change in coastal habitats throughout the Gulf of Maine, and our sand dune restoration site in Seabrook was selected as a monitoring site. Anytime you are in the area, stop by and snap a picture.
Download their app (click the button below for the Apple Store or Google Play) and upload the photo. Or, simply send the photo to Alyson. Stay tuned as a new project involving photomonitoring stations in local salt marshes will be starting soon!
