Join us for a weekly Date @ 8 shore dive. We meet at the Burger King on Rt.128 in Beverly every Saturday morning and head to one of Cape Ann's numerous dive sites for a dive or two. Dive sites are decided on the spot to accomodate the experience and skill levels of those who show up, and everyone is welcome - members and non-members alike.
Please contact the coordinator (listed on the Date @ 8 page linked
above) a day or two before Saturday if you'd like to join us, to make
sure the group doesn't leave without you if you're running a little late.
Also, please note that during winter months we meet at 10am! See you there!

***** WE'RE BACK TO IN-PERSON MEETINGS! *****Janna Nichols:
"Participating in REEF's Volunteer Fish Survey Project - Make Your Dives Count!"
Janna Nichols (REEF Citizen Science Project Manager) will show you how to monitor marine life and submit your data to the largest online marine life sightings database in the world, used by scientists, researchers, students, policy-makers, etc. Participating in REEF's Volunteer Fish Survey Project is easy, fun, and can be done anytime, anywhere, year-round. She will also tell about REEF’s other programs.
Janna has been actively involved in the diving community since 2000, primarily in the cold waters of the Pacific Northwest, where she lives. She has been a PADI scuba instructor, an AAUS scientific diver and a Dive Safety Officer. Many of her underwater photos of marine life have been published in guidebooks, textbooks, online resources, newspapers and scientific publications. In 2003, she received REEF's Volunteer of the Year award, in 2013 she received Dive News Network's Diver of the Year Award, and in 2015 she received the Golden Hamlet award (1000 surveys) from REEF. She has done a few dives by shore and boat in Massachusetts. (Cunner!)
Please join us for the MetroWest Dive Club's General Meeting for the presentation.
