Become an observer

Ready to grab a gauge and measure in millimeters? CoCoRaHS is always looking for observers, especially during the rainy months. Signing up is simple: Go to, click “Join CoCoRaHS” and fill out the application.

From there you’ll be connected to the county director, who will walk you through the process. CoCoRaHS has a particular need for observers in more rural communities outside the Asheville city center.
