  • The GHHP Citizen Science grant allows the local Gladstone public and community groups to participate in scientific water monitoring of selected waterways in and around Gladstone.
  • Harbour Watch trains citizens to independently operate industry-standard water quality equipment and scientifically measure abiotic and biotic water quality factors.
