Wet and Dry


 

The North Stonington Citizens Land Alliance

 

1. WET: Become a citizen scientist, get out there and learn to take water quality

samples from NS lakes, ponds, or brooks for URI’S WATERSHED WATCH program in

which we have taken part for over 20 years. After a 3-hour initial training at the

Kingston, RI lab on April 2 or 6, the tri-season water testing dates are in May-July-
October. We pay, it does not cost you any money, all equipment and testing supplies are

supplied. It can be a great NS experience and special as part of your college or business

references. Let us hear from you.
