DURHAM, N.H. -- For the past 17 years, the volunteers of the Great Bay Coast Watch have been monitoring the quality of the water in the Great Bay Estuary as well as the quantity of phytoplankton along the coast. This year’s monitoring season is about to begin. The Watch will report on its past activities and its future plans at a dinner Tuesday, April 10 at Newick’s Restaurant in Dover from 6-8:30pm. The event will include a presentation on the seasonal movement of lobsters and horseshoe crabs in Great Bay by Win Watson, University of New Hampshire professor of zoology.

The meeting is open to the public and dinner costs $5 per person. To make reservations for the dinner or for more information on the organization, contact GBCW coordinator Ann Reid (603-749-1565, ann.reid@unh.edu). The activities of the Watch are supported by NH Sea Grant and UNH Cooperative Extension.
