The regions oldest environmental organization, the Group Against Smog and Pollution or GASP, recently unveiled their new interactive map that visualizes where the best and worst fine particulate air quality is located. You can toggle between days of the week, time, and season to help you make better choices on where you may want to recreate or exercise.

They are in need of more data, and are looking for volunteers to help.

Check out the map, and please volunteer.
