WSU Snohomish County Beach Watchers have been around since 2006. Their mission is to help protect the Puget Sound waters through research, education and
stewardship. They have been doing these winter starlight beach walks in partnership with the Snohomish County Marine Resources Committee since 2010.
WSU Snohomish County Beach Watchers goal in doing these winter beach walks under the stars, is to help people appreciate the beauty and value of our local
beaches and to inspire caring for our Puget Sound waters and resources.
Anyone can join the program and help protect Puget Sound. The 2017 Beach Watcher training starts in March and applications are due in February.
