Connie has been a volunteer for just a few years but in that time she has made quite an impact. Connie volunteers for all the water quality monitoring programs (First Flush, Urban Watch, Snapshot Day, and Santa Rita Creek Monitoring) as well as Bay Net, Team OCEAN and Beach COMBERS. Connie has significantly contributed to overall knowledge about Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary (MBNMS) and sanctuaries overall, as well as offshore Unusual Mortality Events (UMEs) by walking beaches, and has also significantly contributed to the growing data set about water quality flowing into MBNMS during both wet and dry weather times of the year. Connie embodies everything we hope for in a volunteer: curiosity, energetic, and engaged with her visitors to help them understand and appreciate the wonders within MBNMS.
