Beach Naturalists is for people who want to discover and explore our shorelines and the sea life that call them home. Nearly surrounded by water, the Kitsap Peninsula is an amazing and unique place to learn about the cool critters like sea stars, clams, and crabs, as well as the birds, seaweeds, and plants that live on our beaches.
This six-week class is offered. Sign up to be notified when the registration opens. This class is open to the public, is taught by local and regional experts, and covers topics such as:
- Invertebrates and seaweeds
- Birds and bugs
- Shoreline conservation & restoration
- Shoreline living
- Salish Sea oceanography
- Interpretative skills
After this training we will provide and connect you with opportunities to volunteer around Kitsap County. Beach Naturalist volunteer events include acting as a naturalist for community beach explorations and children’s field trips, conducting beach profiles, monitoring sea stars, and offering outreach at local events.
