Adopt-a-Tide PoolEntry ID: gomc_156
Abstract: Salem Sound Coastwatch trains volunteers to monitor tide pools through
the Adopt-A-Tide pool program. Volunteers will help us focus special attention
on local tide pools and catalog the diversity of both native and invasive
species. This information will be passed on to scientists working on strategies
to address marine invasive species.
