Beach Naturalists

Now that you’ve completed your Beach Naturalist training, it’s time to start paying back those volunteer hours and having fun educating visitors on the beach. 

For Group Visits and Field Trips: Having Naturalists assist with group visits and field trips is extremely helpful and a lot of fun. If you would like to be involved in a group visit that you see on the calendar, please sign up. The spot will list the description of the program, but Deception Pass Interpretive Services will be in contact for a briefing on the specific group’s plans and educational requirements.

For Low Tide Days: Simply go to the Beach Naturalist office, grab your Naturalist gear and educational tools, and set up shop. For those who are signed up for the Identification Table, set up at the picnic table located to the left of the trail down to the tide pools. For those who signed up for Tide Pool Exploration, bring materials down to the beach to set up. Naturalists provide visitors with the opportunity to develop a meaningful connection to the resource through answering questions and pointing out interesting finds. When you’re done, make sure to put everything away in the Beach Naturalist office and fill out your volunteer time sheet.
