Long-term Monitoring Program and Experiential Training for Students

LiMPETS is a citizen science program that monitors the coastal ecosystems of California and helps youth develop a scientific understanding of the ocean. LiMPETS monitors the biology in rocky intertidal and sandy beach ecosystems and aims to provide publicly accessible, scientifically sound, long-term data to inform marine resource management and the scientific community.

High school students participate in the LiMPETS environmental monitoring program in Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary.

Eligibility: Monitoring activities are most appropriate for high school and college students, some limited opportunities may be available for middle school/junior high students.
