Monitoring microplastics around Puget Sound with DERT

May 20, 2023 - 11:00 am


Interested in monitoring microplastics around Puget Sound?

Looking for a meaningful way to give back to the environment and contribute to scientific research? DERT could use your help! We are looking for a few dedicated volunteers to receive a training on microplastics sediment sampling for a upcoming study.

The training will be provided by Puget SoundKeeper, a respected environmental organization dedicated to protecting the health of the Puget Sound, on May 20th from 11 AM to 3 PM in Seattle, WA, and DERT will cover all of the travel expenses.

The volunteers who complete the training will work with DERT to conduct a microplastics survey in our area over the summer.

As a volunteer, you’ll have the opportunity to make a real difference in the fight against microplastics pollution, and all expenses will be covered. Sign up today, space is limited!
