Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay: Integrating Citizen-based and other nontraditional monitoring into the Chesapeake Bay Program monitoring framework Permanent Link

The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, Inc. (Alliance) in partnership with the Izaak Walton League of America (League), the Alliance for Aquatic Resource Monitoring (ALLARM) at Dickinson College, and the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science Integration and Application Network (UMCES IAN) will provide technical, logistical, and outreach support for the integration of citizen-based and non-traditional monitoring networks into the Chesapeake Bay Program partnership. The Alliance will serve as overall partnership coordinator, manage the cooperative agreement, serve as liaison to the Chesapeake Bay Program and STAR workgroups, and collaborate with the project partners on citizen volunteer recruitment, training, and tool and resource development. This Coordinator will provide day to day leadership on the many technical activities of the work with input of the project partners. The League will also provide support for recruitment, training, and tool and resource development with a focus in Maryland and Virginia. ALLARM will provide this same support with a focus on the Pennsylvania and New York portions of the Bay watershed. UMCES will focus on data analysis and synthesis. The Alliance will contract with a private firm with IT and database experience to develop an online database and data entry tool.  Full Details
