our mission

To promote education and conservation through the documentation and participation of leading citizen-science projects. 

We continue to participate in a variety of science projects providing valuable data to organizations such as NOAA, COASST, and Sea Grant. We’ve trapped for the invasive European Green Grab, sampled for microplastics in both the marine and freshwater environments, conducted debris surveys, collected data on beached coastal birds, and collected data on our Wild and Scenic Rivers.

Wild and Scenic Rivers

A new season of fieldwork has commenced. We’re excited to be working with Adventure Scientist on this project for a third season. This wet, rainy weekend finds us back in Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest and the  Suiattle River to measure the health of this iconic river.

Be sure to watch our Twitter account for reports from the field.

Support

Our mission is a labor of love, but it does come with overhead. If you’d like to support our efforts we’d certainly appreciate it. Currently, we’re actively participating in the following field research:

  • COASST Beached Bird Surveys
  • Wild and Scenic River Project

Thank you.

An advantage to our volunteering is that we’re often well off the beaten track presented with spectacular scenery. Here you can find our more dramatic photos taken in the field.

A Dive Into the History of North Beach Peninsula

Earlier this summer, we had planned a trip out to the Washington Coast to explore what is commonly known as the Longbeach Peninsula. I was anxious to visit some of the historical sites I was reading about in a history book entitled, “Jailhouse Stories from Early Pacific County.”

However, imagine my surprise to find that the actual name of this strip of sand is the North Beach Peninsula, and its common name was due to some turn-of-the-century marketing sleight of hand!
