Last updated 2/25/2009 at Noon
You have probably talked with WSU Beach Watchers if you spend time at Mukilteo Lighthouse Park they have been out there sharing information about the wildlife and waters that live along that shoreline.
WSU Beach Watchers are volunteers dedicated to protecting Puget Sound through education, research and restoration. The fourth annual WSU Beach Watcher training is coming up: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays and Fridays, March 24 through May 8, based out of McCollum Park in South Everett.
You receive 100 hours of university level training on topics like local geology and coastal processes, forestry, birds, marine biology, water quality topics, the latest climate change science, tribal and farming history, noxious weeds, native plants, salmon, shoreline regulations, intertidal organisms and so much more, said Chrys Bertolotto, WSU Snohomish County Extension Beach Watcher Coordinator.
There are lots of field trips and hands-on learning opportunities.
