One of the many projects a Virginia Master Naturalist may be involved in is the CoCoRaHS (Community Collaborative Rain, Hail & Snow Network) which is daily precipitation reporting from a rain gauge. This is very valuable information for many different organizations from NOAA to Drought and Flood Control Agencies.
Weather observations from citizens is not only fun participating in meteorological science, but super interesting as well! Learn more about this program here.
