Sound Toxins Volunteer – PTMSC

We have an opening for a Sound Toxins volunteer. The Sound Toxins project looks for bio-toxin producing phytoplankton by collecting water samples and using our lab microscope to find culprit plankton. 

Our volunteers survey one of four different sites and serve as the early warning about harmful algae blooms (HAB) in our area. This is one of the more rigorous science projects we do, but no prior experience is necessary. Visit for more information.

A mid-winter information session about HABs at NOAA NW Fisheries Science Center in Seattle is open to our volunteers. 

For more information, contact Betsy Carlson at or 360-385-5582 x301.
