Beach Monitoring – Austin Estuary
Beach Monitoring is one of Harbor WildWatch’s signature Community Science Programs where twice a year (summer & winter), we collect data from eleven different beaches throughout the South Sound area. This information helps us determine how the beaches change over time and could be useful in determining the impact of a future natural or human induced event.
We meet in the parking area of the beach at the scheduled time and walk to our monitoring site about 5-10 minutes after. See below for more detailed directions. If you know beforehand that you will be late, please contact Stena, and she can provide any special details as well as day of event contact information. Participation with these special community science events gets you, your friends, and family directly involved with the protection of our local beaches and who knows, may even inspire future ecologists. Mark your calendar for any or all of these upcoming events. Remember, you don’t have to have a science background to participate, nor are you required to stay for the entire duration of the typically 3-4 hour program. All ages welcome.
