Bay Watchers Program

What is Bay Watchers?

  • We envision a partnership between the University of Idaho Coeur d’Alene, the Our Gem Coeur d’Alene Lake Collaborative, and lake and bay communities
  • We hope to provide educational resources to lake and bay residents to create a network of neighbors helping neighbors

Our initial concept

  • We are seeking citizen ambassadors to help shape and implement an approach to improving our lake water quality and to share that information with the broader community
  • We will assist in providing residents with information and resources on water related topics such as aquatic plants, dock permits, and phosphorous and algae blooms
  • We plan to be an on-going resource for program ambassadors and fellow residents with water quality questions, guiding them to understand applicable agency roles and rules
  • We are interested in incorporating a citizen science component for Bay Watchers Ambassadors to support lake water quality monitoring
