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 8, Harris Beach State Park, beginning at 10 a.m.  Participants will assemble at the overlook on the ADA-accessible trail/ramp.  (Harris Beach State Park can be found off Hwy 101 at the north end of Brookings.)  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.
