CoastWatch Volunteer Coordinator Jesse Jones is about to tour the coast, with the goal meeting with CoastWatchers (and those interested in CoastWatch) at various locations.  She will lead beachwalks on numerous CoastWatch miles.  These events provide an opportunity to get questions answered about CoastWatch monitoring and reporting, learn about citizen science projects including sea star observations and marine debris surveys, discuss the rocky habitat site designation process and how you can get involved, and mingle with other CoastWatchers.  Bring coffee, tea, or water, and a snack, and plan for a 90-minute excursion. 

Registration is required.  Contact Jesse at (503) 989-7244, [email protected].
