Hi Divers,
We have an awesome community outreach event planned on Sunday August 10th with our friends at the Ritz Carlton. We are still firming up the details, but basically we will need around 5-8 volunteers to help us run a few outdoor activities to show the general public and our Dana Point Adopt-A-Reef partners what we are all about. We will have a few interactive stations: the Ritz Team will lead a tidepooling excursion while we will be leading a station with some transects laid out in the sand and some 'critters' for our guests to count on their very own datasheets. We will also have some Reef Check divers coming out of the surf after a dive (real or staged) with all their RCCA survey gear attached and some 'data' on their slates. These divers will interact with the visitors on the beach and talk about some of the things we count, talk about their survey gear, what it's like to be a citizen scientist, etc. Should be fun!

I'm sure it's not often that most of us are hanging out at the Dana Point Ritz Carlton, but I can tell you it's a beautiful venue. The event will run for a few hours in the afternoon (yay for no early morning!) and I'm hoping we can have lunch provided. More details as I get them, but let me know if you might be interested!

Thanks, Colleen

Volunteers:
1 Gerald - "diver"
2 Bill P.
3 Scott
4 Lydia
5 Ted
6 Kevin "diver"
7 Colleen
8 Yadi
9 Gregor

Yep, I'm so in!

Probably the closest I will ever come to a Ritz-Carlton :)

Colleen,

Do you happen to know the name or contact info for a reputable scientific diver program?

Thank you,

Bill

Sorry, I did not check the correct calendar. I am tied up and unable to participate in the Ritz Event.
