Mission Statement

We are volunteers dedicated to protecting the Salish Sea through education, research and stewardship. We have been trained by state, regional, and local experts through a rigorous training program overseen by Washington State University Extension.

Description

Beach Watchers come from all walks of life and bring a rich cross-section of backgrounds, experience, service and talents to their training from WSU.

Beach Watchers do not have to be experts or teachers, but they must be willing to attend a formal training program, want to and are able to serve in a volunteer capacity and are curious about the natural world. All Beach Watchers must submit an application and complete 80 hours of expert training from top instructors in such subjects as water quality, coastal processes, education techniques, and marine life.

In return for this unique educational opportunity, all new Beach Watchers agree to "give back" a minimum of 80 volunteer hours to scientific surveys, serving as field or classroom educators, supporting beach clean-up activities, conducting outreach at festivals, teaching about specific behaviors to clean up Puget Sound and so many other opportunities. Each person gets to craft their own volunteer experience to meet their interests and schedules. It is fun and the enthusiasm is contagious.
