Workshop On Shoreline Science At Marshfield High

The Coast Watch program is offering the public a chance to take an intensive, three-day workshop in shoreline science. The event will take place in Coos Bay, August 11th–13th. It will be led by
coastal ecologist Stewart Schultz, author of “The Northwest Coast: A
Natural History.” He will be assisted by Fawn Custer, CoastWatch’s
volunteer coordinator.

The workshop, at Marshfield High School, South 10th and
Ingersoll in Coos Bay, will cover everything from tide pools and sandy beaches, to estuarine and ocean ecosystems, to geology and forests, to marine mammals and birds. Matters such as marine debris and invasive species will also be discussed. Each session will include field trips, indoor presentations and laboratory experiences. The workshop will begin at 8:30am on the first day, and at 8am on the final two days, and will run until approximately 4:30pm each day.
Workshop fee will be $50 for those who are volunteers with the
CoastWatch program, and $90 for members of the general public.
