Bryomonitoring Canada

“Reserve Your Turf” is open!

After a long delay, our grid reservation system is now open! Our volunteers (you!) can sign up to sample moss in one of over 900 grid areas across the country. Your samples will be used to help researchers understand air pollution trends across Canada. If you will be out hiking, exploring, or doing field research this summer, please take a few minutes to collect samples for Bryomonitoring Canada! Please stay safe while you sample, and follow your province or territory’s current Covid-19 restrictions.

Please Reserve Your Turf and help pick moss for science!
