WSU Beach Watchers

“WSU Beach Watchers are trained volunteers who promote science-based marine stewardship through education, research, public awareness and example.”

WSU Beach Watchers make up a large core of our dedicated volunteer staff, and are instrumental in the continual forward momentum of our project. Volunteers receive approximately 100 hours of training from Washington State University in the physical, biological, and cultural science behind marine stewardship. In return, trained WSU Beach Watchers provide 100 hours of volunteer service educating citizens and visitors in the community. WSU Beach Watchers work in cooperation with other local stewardship groups in order to complement, rather than duplicate their activities.

From assisting with research projects to monitoring beaches to conducting public outreach, volunteers get involved with their local communities in valuable ways. For more information about this program and upcoming classes, please contact coordinator Shann Weston at 378-7666 or sweston@wsu.edu, or learn more at www.beachwatchers.wsu.edu/sanjuan.
