Scientific Surveyors Dive Into Otter Rock Marine Reserve (March 9, 2015)
Volunteer scientific divers are practicing their survey skills in Otter Rock Marine Reserve this week. Last month, the divers completed an intensive training and now they are honing their new skills. Led by trained SCUBA divers from Oregon State University and the Oregon Coast Aquarium, our new crop of scientific divers are an enthusiastic and committed bunch. We hope to use the calm weather over the coming weeks to continue training dives and surveys with the Mini-lander (shown in the picture between the divers) in the Otter Rock Marine Reserve.
