2. MONITORING AVAILABILITY:
Please answer the following questions regarding your generally ANTICIPATED availability from July - September, and describe the amount of time you'd like to commit to volunteering this season. This information will assist with drafting a monitoring schedule. There will be opportunities to review the schedule before it is finalized in June.
Volunteer shifts are 1/2-day commitments for the morning or afternoon of field days. Full-day availability (being free for both shifts on a given day) is preferred to minimize the logistics of trying to meet up as work moves from site to site. How many 1/2-day shifts seem ideal for you this summer?
3 shifts (around 8-12 hours)
4 shifts (around 12-16 hours)
Potentially more than 4 if my availability aligns with the schedule.
