Flyer for the June 30th beached bird COASST training in Port Townsend

Love the beach? Want to contribute to seabird research as a citizen scientist?

TRAINING SESSION JUNE 30TH IN PORT TOWNSEND FOR COASST PROJECT BEACHWALKERS

Join the Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team
(COASST), and make a difference for the environment! COASST participants collect monthly data on beached carcasses of marine birds to establish the pattern of bird mortality on North Pacific beaches. Data collected helps address important marine conservation issues. No prior scientific experience is needed!
Beach surveys are best when conducted in groups of 2 or more — so go with a partner in mind or in tow! The training is free, but COASST asks for a $31 refundable survey kit deposit to take the materials home.
RSVP before June 25th by contacting coasst@uw.edu, or reach out to that email address with any questions.
