2020 Beach Naturalist Training

Posted by Estuarium

The Estuarium’s summer Meet the Beach program will be here before we know it and our 2020 Beach Naturalist Training starts April 25th!

POSTPONED: More info coming soon.

The Estuarium’s Meet the Beach program is a hands on opportunity to work with beachgoers who visit our local beaches. Volunteers in this program work to create a greater understanding of the Puget Sound. Meet the Beach is offered to the general public at local beaches, such as Burfoot Park, Tolmie State Park, Priest Point, Frye Cove, and Woodard Bay during summer low tides.

Volunteer Beach Naturalists learn about the amazing diversity of creatures who live there and talk with people about how everyday choices can have a positive impact on our water quality. They answer people’s “what is that?” questions, get kids engaged looking for the creatures that live in the intertidal zone, increase awareness about what it takes to survive here and beach behavior (creatures home and leave living things at the beach, be gentle, and share ideas about what we can do to protect our waters and the creatures that depend upon its health.
