The Seattle Aquarium is again seeking volunteer beach naturalists to answer questions at beaches in King County this summer.
Naturalists will attend a program orientation on Tuesday, March 13, and receive training from marine and interpretative experts on five weekday evenings and three weekend days in March, April and May.
Once trained, volunteers spend three summer days educating visitors about beach ecology and beach etiquette at Carkeek Park, Constellation Park (Alki), Des Moines Beach Park, Golden Gardens, Lincoln Park, Olympic Sculpture Park Beach, Redondo Beach, Richmond Beach or Seahurst Park. To sign up or get more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 206-386-4365.
