COASST training for surveying marine debris
August 25, 2018 at 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Beachwatchers wanted for
coastal observation and seabird survey team (coasst)
On August 25th from 11:00am to 5:00pm, the Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team (COASST) will deliver a free training session in Blaine, WA for citizens interested in surveying for marine debris. The COASST Marine Debris program is focused on the intersection of science, conservation, and communities. Rather than simply identifying debris, the program characterizes it and measures its abundance in particular zones of the beach.
The training session will be held at Lions Camp Horizon (7506 Gemini St Blaine, WA 98230) and is free. There will be a short break in the middle of the session for lunch, so please bring your own sack lunch, or money to purchase food in the area. Volunteers need NO prior experience with scientific data collection, just a commitment to survey a specific beach at least once a month.
Reserve your training spot by calling COASST at 206-221-6893 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on COASST visit coasst.org
