Immerse Yourself in Puget Sound

The City of Mukilteo in partnership with WSU Snohomish County Extension is proud to bring the community the opportunity to become a “Beach Watcher”.

Join WSU Snohomish County Extension Beach Watchers!

Do you love to spend time at the beach? Do you want to craft your own volunteer experience? Then become a WSU Snohomish County Extension Beach Watcher. Receive in-depth training and help protect Puget Sound’s waters, wildlife and landscape through education, research and stewardship.

Receive 80 hours of intensive core training by local experts in classrooms and in field locations and 20 hours of experiential training. Then, continue learning while volunteering at least 100 hours over two years on education, research or restoration projects that you select. Projects range from doing low-tide education at beaches to fish egg sampling to newsletter article writing. You can join a team or work on your own. You are also welcome to bring your own ideas!

The core training will be offered every Friday between September 11-October 16 from 9:00am-3:30pm. The training is based at McCollum Park, 600 128th Street SE, Everett and there is a $35 materials fee (waivers available).
