Water Quality Monitoring Training

The Galveston Bay Foundation’s Water Monitoring Team is an integral part of preserving, protecting and enhancing the water quality in Galveston Bay. Volunteers conduct regular sampling around Galveston Bay that includes chemical analyses, physical sampling, and field observations to create a unique portrait of water quality for each site.

GBF’s spring training for new volunteer water monitors will be held on April 21 from 9am-4pm in Anahuac, TX.

Registration closes April 18. More details on training location will be given upon registration.

Please note that you are not fully registered until you have received confirmation from GBF staff. 

Priority is given to those who intend to monitor:

  1. At one of our inactive locations, highlighted in blue on our sampling map linked here, allowing us to continue monitoring at sites that have existing data.
  2.  At another location along Trinity Bay (Beach City or Anahuac) or along East Bay (Bolivar Penninsula or Anahuac Wildlifre Refuge). These are locations where we currently have very little active water quality monitoring.

Monitoring sites will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis.
