Fawn Custer, CoastWatch’s volunteer coordinator, will meet with all comers on Friday, December 15, in Oregon State University’s Port Orford Field Station (444 Jackson St.), from 11:30 a.m. through about 12:30 p.m.  If weather permits, this will be followed by a beachwalk.

Fawn will provide a general “CoastWatch Clinic”—a how-to-do-it review of the techniques for monitoring a CoastWatch mile.  This is a chance for south coast mile adopters to obtain any training they feel they need, and to hone their skills.  This is also an opportunity for prospective volunteers to learn about CoastWatch and consider adopting a mile.  Bring your questions!

The session will also focus on the King Tide photography project, as Fawn will provide pointers for those willing to volunteer themselves and their cameras for the third round of the project in January.

Weather allowing, participants can then head to the beach for some on-the-ground training and guided beachcombing.
