Track Your Hours

As we all know tracking our volunteer hours is important for documenting all the hard work that WSU Beach Watchers contribute to Puget Sound waters and wildlife. Please use this link and let us know if you have any questions or having any suggestions for improving this interface.

Check out this new link for tracking your volunteer hours!

Here is the time sheet if you would like to download and mail in a paper form.  Here are instructions if you need a reminder on how to enter data electronically.


Natural Resources Lending Library

The 4H Natural Resources, Forestry and Puget Sound staff have pooled their libraries together to create a lending library of a great collection of books, field guides, DVDs, teacher curricula and journals for you to use.  To see the list of library books (October 2011), click here.

The library is located in the main building of WSU Snohomish County Extension and is available to all from 9 AM – 5 PM on weekdays (not including some holidays).  Anyone can check out materials.  We add to the library content on a sporadic basis.
