There are many ways to get involved with OLPA. Come to a meeting, give us your input, sign up for a committee or just join us at one of the many events offered throughout the year. We'd love to hear from you!

Have a smart phone or digital photo capacity to take picture and email them.
Have access and capability to log into a website and fill out a report.
Have access to shoreline that can be monitored weekly between Sunday morning and Monday afternoon- anytime in that period. Reporting to follow. Sampling if necessary.
Samples to be delivered to a site in Amber within 6 hours of collection.
