PARTICIPATION ARRANGEMENTS

The meeting time is normally 5 hours before high tide.

Please try and let Penny or Rob know, by email or by phone, several days before each fieldwork activity if you are planning to participate. This greatly helps reduce the number of phone calls which organizers have to make to complete a satisfactory team for each activity.
