For the second year, South Sound Estuary Association will offer the Beach Naturalists Program. Beach Naturalists have the opportunity to work with people who have come to area beaches seeking a personal connection with the water. Volunteers work to create a greater understanding of the South Puget Sound and its estuaries. They talk about how everyday choices can have a positive impact on our water quality.
Our own Frye Cove is among those beaches included in this program.
Beach Naturalist volunteers are asked to commit 12 training hours followed by at least 4 days on the beach during the months of June, July, and August.
The Beach Naturalist Program is offering more training opportunities than last year for a modest fee of $40. All program fees are due by the first training session on April 7th, 2011.
Would you like to become a Beach Naturalist, but cannot afford the $40 tuition? The Griffin Neighborhood Association is underwriting the tuition for two participants in the program. You must live within the Griffin School District to qualify for this tuition assistance.
