Beach naturalists needed at Deception Pass State Park

Do you love being on the beach? Are you good with people?

This is your opportunity to receive free training to become a beach naturalist at Rosario Beach.

Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about our beaches. They want to help other people learn how to care for and enjoy them, too. Help visitors see and stay on the trail. Help be the first wave of a new era at Rosario.

WSU and Deception Pass State Park are coming together to offer this outstanding training to local people in exchange for their dedicated help during the summer months.

Four-or-five, fun-filled classes will begin on Wednesday, April 6. They will be held at the Deception Pass State Park office on Highway 20, on Wednesday evenings from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. You will learn aboutĀ  cultural history, beach etiquette, preservation, beach critters, seaweeds, marine mammals, toxic and chemical pollution and what we can do about it, and more. There will also be two field trips at low tides on the weekends.

To sign up, contact Sammye Kempbell at 929-6989 or emailĀ  sammyek@iglide.net.
