Beachwatchers And Birders Wanted For Coastal Observation And Seabird Survey Team (COASST)

On Sunday, March 18th, 2018 from 10:00 to 4:00pm, the Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team (COASST) will deliver a free training session at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds Director’s Room. COASST participants help make a difference for the environment by collecting data on beach-cast carcasses of marine birds on a monthly basis to establish the baseline pattern of beached bird mortality on North Pacific beaches.

COASST is a citizen science project of the University of Washington in partnership with state, tribal, and federal agencies, environmental organizations, and community groups. COASST believes citizens of coastal communities are essential scientific partners in monitoring marine ecosystem health. By collaborating with citizens, natural resource management agencies and environmental organizations, COASST works to translate long-­term monitoring into effective marine conservation solutions. Currently, around 1000 volunteers survey beaches in Washington, Oregon, California, and Alaska.

Through an interactive, hands-­on workshop, trainees will become acquainted the custom COASST field guide, Beached Birds, and have a chance to try out their newly acquired identification skills on seabird species common to the North Pacific. The COASST training provides participants with the tools to monitor for potential changes in the marine environment and promote stewardship of local marine resources.

The training session will beheld at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds in the Director’s Room (421 Hwy 101 North, Crescent City, CA 95531) and is free. Reserve your training spot by calling COASST at 206-­221-­6893 or by emailing For more information on COASST visit
