2012 Programs and Projects
The GLSPS dive boat, the R/V Preservation, will be available for use with many of these projects. Members, this is your opportunity to get involved and participate. Projects are open to GLSPS Members. Divers must have a certification from basic scuba diving to Advanced Open Water Diver certification or comparable experience, depending on project level. (See levels below). Level 3 to five require a level of advanced open water and sometimes advanced technical dive certifications. Stabilization Projects will require proprietary training and skills with preservation techniques and underwater tool handling. The GLSPS will offer annual training for this once per year as interest builds. If you are interested in any of the above projects, please contact the trip leader and sign up early. Please remember, any of the above programs and projects can changed, postponed or canceled at any time because of weather, underwater visibility, scheduling, lack of personnel and volunteers for the projects.
