Training for the Beached Bird Survey

Help make a difference sfor the environment by collecting beached bird data for the Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team (COASST). COASST is a citizen science program involving participants in the collection of high quality data used in natural resource management and conservation decisions.

Beached bird participants systematically count and identify bird carcasses to help determine baselines for seabird mortality along the North Pacific coast. No prior experience is necessary, just a commitment to survey a specific beach (about ¾ mile) each month.

If you are interested in participating, visit our website to learn more about our program and join us at one of the training sessions below:

PORT ORFORD TRAINING
Saturday, July 22, 2017
10:00 am – 4:00 pm
OSU Sea Grant Field Station
444 Jackson Street

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. Training activities take place indoors. Please RSVP to coasst@uw.edu or 206-221-6893.
