Become a Beach Watcher
Immerse Yourself in Puget Sound!
Become a WSU Snohomish County Extension Beach Watcher. You receive 80 hours of training and then craft your own volunteer experience by giving back 80 hours in Puget Sound education, research or stewardship projects that you select over the next two years. The university caliber training includes expert lectures on topics from marine wildlife to water quality to climate change, and many guided field trips.
Why is Being a Beach Watcher so Awesome?
Not only will you learn TONS about the place we live in, you will also get hands-on experience working with a passionate group of fellow volunteers. You get to choose what you do: You can share what you learned through education projects to help people better appreciate, understand and conserve Puget Sound health OR get involved in one or several Puget Sound related research projects OR bring your own ideas to craft your own volunteer experience!
The Beach Watcher training will be based out of McCollum Park, Everett every Friday at 9 AM – 3:30 PM from March 17 - May 19, 2017 and will include two Saturday field trips on April 1 and April 29, 2017. There is a $55 (electronic version) or $75 (hard copy) materials fee.
