WaterWatch Water Quality Monitoring
Cooloola Coastcare conducts Water Quality Monitoring once every 2 months in the Tin Can Bay, Cooloola Cove and Rainbow Beach areas.
We are currently looking for more volunteers who will be trained and mentored.
It only takes about 1 - 2 hours every 2 months.
Meet a great group of like minded people and contribute to the protection and care of our beautiful Cooloola Coast.
