WSU Snohomish County Extension Beach Watchers are looking for volunteers in Everett and beyond.

Receive 80 hours of university caliber training involving field trips and expert lectures on topics like salmon, water quality, climate change, marine wildlife, coastal processes, citizen science, community outreach, and more!

After the trainings, volunteer at least 80 hours in projects you select over the next two years. Projects range from doing low-tide education at beaches to water quality sampling to festival community outreach. You can join a team or work on your own to help people better appreciate, understand and conserve Puget Sound health OR get involved in one or several Puget Sound related research projects OR bring your own ideas to craft your own volunteer experience!
