The second national workshop on 'The Role of Citizen Volunteers in Environmental Monitoring' was held in New Orleans, Louisiana, in December 1989. Cosponsored by EPA's Office of Marine and Estuarine Protection and the Gulf of Mexico Program, the workshop was attended by 160 people representing many different kinds of volunteer monitoring programs and government agencies from all around the country. A primary objective of the second national workshop was to explore 'how to provide useful information and how to encourage partnership between citizen monitoring groups and state or regional government.' A second major objective of the workshop was to introduce state and regional government officials to the achievements and potential of volunteer monitoring. The third goal of the conference was to provide an opportunity for participants to meet and foster a national network of citizen volunteers.
