The Coastal Research Volunteers' past projects have helped researchers track fish species, monitor flooding, restore streambanks, and gather data on stormwater quality. Learn more about each project below!
Lubberland Creek Fish Surveys (2015). Coastal Research Volunteers contributed nearly 100 hours of effort to survey the fish species upstream and downstream of a culvert in Lubberland Creek in Newmarket, NH. The data were used to develop a report on the creek's fish community and to make recommendations for the future management of Lubberland Creek.
Catch The King (2019). Coastal Research Volunteers assisted in a pilot project in coastal New Hampshire to collect real-time flooding data during a projected king tide on Oct. 27-30, 2019. A total of 2,512 data points were collected by 8 volunteer teams over the 4-day sampling period. This data helps identify potential flooding hotspots and may help improve decision-making for coastal towns.
Streambank Restoration (2016). Coastal Research Volunteers assisted with the restoration of impaired streambank along Cornelius Brook at the Sagamore-Hampton Golf Club. Volunteers collected soil samples, created a pollinator meadow, revegetated impaired shoreline, and tested water quality.
