Webinar: Engaging Volunteers through Citizen Scientist Programs

Webinar: Engaging Volunteers through Citizen Scientist Programs Join Jace Tunnel (Nurdle Patrol) and Aspen Navarro (The Meadows Center- Texas Stream Team) for a look at their citizen scientist programs. Find out how they engaged volunteers to take part in scientific collection and study of issues affecting our Texas waterways.

Nurdle Patrol is a citizen science project lead by the Mission-Aransas National Estuarine Research Reserve at the University of Texas Marine Science Institute in Port Aransas, Texas. They are looking to gather information about where nurdles are located across Texas and the rest of the Gulf of Mexico, remove the nurdles from the environment, and create awareness about the nurdle issue. Nurdles are small plastic pellets and are the basis of everything plastic. They are small and look like food to animals, and they absorb other toxins in the environment so can be deadly to some animals depending on the toxin concentrations.

Texas Stream Team coordinates a network of partner organizations and citizen scientists to increase the public's knowledge of water quality and nonpoint source pollution across the state. Texas Stream Team is a long-term collaboration of The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment at Texas State University, the TCEQ, and EPA in an on-going statewide program of citizen water quality monitoring and outreach.
