What We Do
Island County Beach Watchers initiate and volunteer for a wide variety of activities in Island County, contributing more than twenty thousand hours yearly.
They focus on activities - to improve, maintain and protect a thriving Puget Sound ecosystem through education, community outreach, stewardship, and research.

Each year, things get busy:
- In February through June with Seining to measure juvenile salmon populations.
- During extreme-low-tide days from late April through mid summer, Intertidal Montoring begins, to baseline what we find in the intertidal zone on our beaches from year to year.
- Mid-summer, the Sound Waters crew gets busy, to plan and organize for the one-day "university for all" held each February (with up to 500+ attendees).
- Throughout the year, all sorts of projects keep us busy, and we always NEED YOUR HELP.
