The Town of Barnstable is recruiting volunteers (and if they have one, their boat too!) to be citizen scientists and join us on the water! 

Every summer the Town of Barnstable collects water samples in Barnstable Harbor, Lewis Bay, Centerville River, Halls Creek, and 3-Bays.  These water samples provide important information about the health of our estuaries. 

In 2022, samplers will sample each estuary four times (mid-July – early September).
If you are interested in being part of our water quality monitoring program, then please contact Amber Unruh at for more information.
