Track Your Hours

As we all know, tracking our volunteer hours is important for documenting and reporting all the hard work that WSU Beach Watchers contribute to Puget Sound waters and wildlife. Please use the WSU Volunteer Database Website to report your hours and activities.

Questions? Visit the Snohomish County WSU Extension Contact Us page to find contact information for your program coordinator or admin.

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.

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).  Any volunteer can check out materials.  We add to the library content on a sporadic basis.
