Beach Monitoring is one of Harbor WildWatch's signature Community Science Programs where twice a year (summer & winter), we collect data from nine different beaches throughout the South Sound area. This information helps us determine how the beaches change over time and could be useful in determining the impact of a future natural or human induced event. We meet in the parking area of the beach at the scheduled time and walk to our monitoring site about 10 minutes after. Participation with these special citizen science events gets you, your friends, and family directly involved with the protection of our local beaches and who knows, may even inspire future ecologists! Remember, you don't have to have a science background to participate, nor are you required to stay for the entire duration of the typically 3-4-hour program. All ages welcome.
