COASST Marine Debris Training Session @ Ocean Shore Convention Center
May 7 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
COASST Marine Debris Training Session @ Ocean Shore Convention Center | Ocean Shores | Washington | United States

COASST Marine Debris participants survey local beaches and collect data on the characteristics and location of debris – data that will ultimately be used to map the source and transport pathways of debris, as well as the potential harm to people, wildlife, and local coastal ecosystems. Volunteers need NO prior experience, just a commitment to survey a specific beach (about ¾ mile) each month.

If you are interested in participating, join COASST staff for the training session. There is no charge to attend the training, but plan to provide a $20 refundable deposit if you would like to take home a COASST volunteer kit. Training activities take place indoors. Beach surveys are best conducted in groups of 2 or more – please come with a survey partner in mind or plan to join a team during training.
