COASST Marine Debris Training @ Ocean Shores Library
Apr 15 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
COASST Marine Debris Training @ Ocean Shores Library | Ocean Shores | Washington | United States

The Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team (COASST) will deliver a free training session for citizens interested in joining the COASST Marine Debris program. The COASST Marine Debris program is focused on the intersection of science, conservation, and communities. Through an interactive, hands-on workshop, trainees will learn how to collect data on the characteristics and location of debris – data that will ultimately be used to map the source and transport pathways of debris and to identify potential harm to people, wildlife, and local coastal ecosystems.

There is no charge to attend, but we ask participants to provide a $20 refundable deposit if they would like to take home a COASST survey toolkit. 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. No prior experience is necessary, just a commitment to survey a specific beach at least once a month. Training activities take place indoors. Reserve your training spot by calling emailing.

1968: The Year That Rocked Washington exhibit opening @ State Reception Room, Washington State Capitol | Olympia | Washington | United States

It changed us in ways still rippling a half-century later. 1968: The Year That Rocked Washington features a collection of online stories and an exhibit at the Washington State Capitol with profiles, compelling photos, and artifacts that document the activism and aftershocks of a landmark year in world history.

Rural Community Vitality Forum @ Grays Harbor College

Rural Community Vitality Forum @ Grays Harbor College

Washington’s economy is booming
Are you experiencing the boom in your business, organization, and community?

When it comes to training existing employees and finding qualified new hires, the challenge is real in rural Washington. Education, workforce training, and other services may or may not be available where you live. If they are—then are they working for you? Effective policy for rural regions can only be informed by the “lived in” experience of people in those communities. That’s the purpose behind this Rural Community Vitality Forum in Aberdeen that asks the local community what’s working, and what’s not. Tell us your story, give us your perspective, and help shape solutions. This will be a facilitated but free-flowing discussion, so come prepared to participate.

We’re listening, and so is the U.S. Department of Labor
This rural “listening tour” is brought to you by the state’s Workforce Board, which helps convene and oversee the state’s workforce system. An economist from the Workforce Board will provide a snapshot of the local economy. Then a facilitator funded by the U.S. Department of Labor will help us capture your comments and frame next steps. Once the comments are compiled you’ll have a chance to provide input before a report is provided to state and federal policymakers. This is your chance to be heard, and make a difference where you live.

We need a firm headcount for our business breakfast (7:30 a.m.) and our community forum. So register today for these free events at:
