On Saturday, June 7, COASST will deliver a free training session from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Sekiu Community Center, 42 Rice St.
Volunteers will collect data on a monthly basis to establish the baseline pattern of beached bird mortality on North Pacific beaches.
Through an interactive, hands-on workshop, trainees will become acquainted with the custom COASST field guide, Beached Birds, and have a chance to try out their newly acquired identification skills on seabird species common to Northern California.
The COASST training provides volunteers with the tools to monitor for potential changes in the marine environment and promote stewardship of local marine resources.
There will be a short break in the middle of the session for lunch, so bring a sack lunch or money to purchase food in the area.
To reserve a training spot, phone 206-221-6893 or email email@example.com.
