CoastWatch Volunteer Coordinator Jesse Jones is touring the coast and meeting with CoastWatchers (and those interested in CoastWatch) at various locations.  The second of these “meet and greets” takes place on Wednesday, Aug. 25, 2 p.m., as Jesse visits CoastWatch Mile 265.  Participants will assemble at the Sitka Sedge State Natural Area parking lot, just south of Whalen House on Sandlake Rd., north of the community of Tierra del Mar.  Registration is required.

Jesse will lead a walk across to the shore and along Mile 265.  This 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.
