Join community science organizations CoastWatch and COASST to learn how you can participate in projects along the Southern Oregon coast.
On Saturday, Dec. 10, CoastWatch and The Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team (COASST) will be sharing opportunities for volunteers to engage in participatory science projects along the Southern Oregon coast. This presentation will be held from 5-7 p.m. at Chetco Brewing (830 Railroad St in Brookings), food will be available until 6 p.m., beer and other libations will be available all evening.
Jesse Jones, the CoastWatch Volunteer Coordinator, will be sharing information about the King Tides Project. Understanding and documenting the extent and impacts of especially high tide events is one way to highlight the need to prepare for the effects of future climate conditions. The King Tides Project generates information that coastal communities can use to reduce vulnerabilities to rising sea levels by involving volunteers who photograph these tides annually.
Established in 1999, COASST is a community science project housed at the University of Washington and focused on the beach environment of the northeast Pacific. COASST trains volunteers how to contribute to projects that monitor their local marine resources and ecosystem health. COASST beached bird participants conduct monthly surveys to systematically count and identify bird carcasses that wash ashore along ocean beaches from northern California to Alaska
