What is LiMPETS?

LiMPETS (Long-term Monitoring Program and Experiential Training for Students) is an environmental monitoring and education program for students, educators, and volunteer groups. Two distinct monitoring programs make up the core of the LiMPETS network: the Rocky Intertidal Monitoring Program and the Sandy Beach Monitoring Program. Both programs connect students to the ocean, involve them directly in a real scientific endeavor, and increase their awareness of, and interest in, the coastal ecosystems of California's National Marine Sanctuaries. Our goal is to create a new generation of informed and engaged ocean stewards. For more information, click here.
