Volunteer with WSU Beach Watchers

Jan 28, 2014

Do you love to spend time at the beach? Want to craft your own volunteer experience? Become a WSU Snohomish County Extension Beach Watcher.

Receive in-depth training and protect Puget Sound’s coastal environment through education, research and restoration.

After 80 hours of intensive training by local experts in classrooms and in field locations, continue learning while volunteering at least 100 hours over two years on a number of self-crafted Puget Sound projects and receive 20 more hours of continued training throughout the year.

Projects can range from doing low-tide education at beaches, fish and beach monitoring, working on teams to planning events.

The core training will be offered on Fridays between March 7 and April 25 and from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturdays, April 12 and April 19.

The training will be based out of Marysville and there is $35 materials fee.

Applications are due on Feb. 14. An open house is being held on Feb. 21 for anyone who would like to learn about the program.

For more information or to request an application, please contact Chrys Bertolotto at chrys@wsu.edu or 425-357-6020, or check the website at http://www.beachwatchers.wsu.edu/snohomish/training/index.htm.

The Snohomish County Beach Watcher training is jointly funded by the Snohomish County Marine Resources Committee, the City of Mukilteo and Washington Department of Ecology.
