CoastWatch Volunteer Coordinator Jesse Jones is touring the coast and meeting with CoastWatchers (and those interested in CoastWatch) at various locations.  She will be on the south coast on Monday, Aug. 30, where she will lead a walk on CoastWatch Mile 1, Winchuck River Park and Crissey Field, beginning at 1 p.m.  Participants will assemble in the Winchuck River Park parking area.  (The turn west from Hwy 101 is just north of the Winchuck River bridge, which in turn is just north of the California border.)  Registration is required.

This field trip is a chance to get questions answered about CoastWatch monitoring and reporting, learn about citizen science projects including sea star observations and marine debris surveys, discuss rocky habitat site designations, and mingle with other CoastWatchers.  Bring coffee, tea, or water, and a snack, and plan for a 90-minute excursion. 

When you register, Jesse will provide more exact information.  Contact her at (503) 989-7244, [email protected].  Be sure to contact her at least an hour before the beachwalk begins.
