EVENT DETAILS
SHORELINE SCIENCE WORKSHOPS
EXPLORE COASTAL ENVIRONMENT

 
 
CoastWatch offers three intensive, three-day workshops on coastal science and natural history this summer.  All are led by coastal ecologist Stewart Schultz, along with Fawn Custer, CoastWatch’s volunteer coordinator. 
 
Workshops will be held in Arch Cape (July 18-20), Depoe Bay (Aug. 1-3) and Port Orford (Aug. 14-16).  They will cover everything from tidepools and sandy beaches to estuarine, coastal forest, and ocean ecosystems.  Each session will include field trips, indoor presentations and laboratory experiences (with some variation, depending on the weather).
The workshops also provide an introduction to citizen science, and background information on projects in which volunteers can participate.  This year there will be a special focus on the marine reserves near each of the workshop locations.
 
The workshops will be especially helpful to those interested in or already engaged in shoreline monitoring through the CoastWatch program, or in other types of citizen science projects, but are open to all and will be of interest to anyone who loves the coast and learning about natural history. Teachers can gain 26 Professional Development Units by attending the workshop. If you have questions about accreditation, contact Fawn Custer (contact information below).
 
Stewart Schultz, author of The Northwest Coast:  A Natural History, is the ideal guide to the shoreline environment.  An Oregonian who grew up playing on the shoreline near Gearhart, he went to Reed College and obtained his doctorate in botany from the University of British Columbia.  He worked on the Oregon coast for the Nature Conservancy, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, gaining wide field experience, before pursuing an academic career as a professor at the University of Miami, and now the University of Zadar in Croatia.  During the academic year he studies marine ecology, as well as his specialty of plant evolution and genetics, but every summer he returns to the Oregon coast to teach shoreline science on his home turf.
 
He will be joined by Fawn Custer, an experienced marine educator who taught for 14 years at the Hatfield Marine Science Center.
 
The three workshops will be held:
 
July 18-20, Arch Cape Fire Hall, 72979 Highway 101, Arch Cape
 
August 1-3, Depoe Bay Community Hall, 220 SE Bay Street, Depoe Bay
 
August 14-16, Port Orford Sea Grant meeting room, 444 Jackson Street, Port Orford
 
Each workshop will begin at 8:30 a.m. on the first day, and at 7 a.m. on the final two days (depending on tides), and will run until approximately 4:30 p.m. each day. Additional details will be provided to registrants


Oregon Shores membership must be current to take the discount.  You may take the discount if joining or renewing membership while registering.  Both members of a couple paying for an Oregon Shores family membership may take the discount.
