Sun, May 20, 10am - 4pm Training Beachwalkers and Birders Wanted!

Help make a difference for the environment by collecting data for the Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team (COASST). COASST is a citizen science project dedicated to involving volunteers in the collection of high quality data on the status of coastal beaches and trends of seabirds. Our goal is to assist government agencies and other organizations in making informed management and conservation decisions, and to promote proactive citizen involvement and action. COASST volunteers systematically count and identify bird carcasses that wash ashore along ocean beaches from northern California to Alaska. Volunteers need NO experience with birds, just a commitment to survey a specific beach (about ¾ mile) each month.

If you are interested in participating, join COASST staff for a training session, conducted in partnership with CoastWatch. Hear about how COASST started, learn how to use the custom Beached Birds field guide, and try out your new skills with some actual specimens. Training activities take place indoors.
