CoastWatch training opportunities for the Central Coast

December 8, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

CoastWatch training opportunities for the Central Coast
CoastWatch Volunteer Coordinator invites everyone interested in coastal natural history, but especially anyone interested in participating in one of our Community Science Teams, to a special training session she has planned for Saturday, Dec. 8, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. in the “education yurt” at Beverly Beach State Park, just north of Newport.
    Her focus is on training CoastWatchers willing to consider being part of the Community Science Teams she is organizing for the Cascade Head and Otter Rock marine reserves. These teams will work with Fawn to coordinate the various citizen science projects that CoastWatch conducts in the areas adjacent to the marine reserves.  But the training she offers would be of value to any CoastWatcher, or anyone else fascinated by the shore, and all are invited to this free event.  Fawn promises a “hands-on type of training with specimens.”
    Another opportunity to learn about citizen science from Fawn Custer arises a week earlier, when she speaks at the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center (2400 Hwy 101, about three miles south of Yachats).  Her talk, free and open to the public, takes place on Saturday, Dec. 1, at 1 p.m.  She will discuss the range of citizen science efforts in which CoastWatch is engaged, with special emphasis on the King Tide Project, through which the highest tides of the year are documented by volunteer photographers.
