Join Washington CoastSavers Coordinator, Megan Juran, to hear about the work that partners and volunteers have been doing to clean marine debris off Washington’s Pacific Coast and Strait of Juan de Fuca beaches. Learn about the successes of “Salish Synergy,” a recently completed NOAA Marine Debris Program grant that included an innovative international recycling component. Also, learn about an exciting new grant, “Clean Coast Quest!” made possible through Sea Grant/NOAA funding. She’ll also share CoastSavers’ latest projects, which include expanding cleanup efforts into the remote beaches of the Quinault Indian Nation, outreach with Taholah School, marine debris mapping of Olympic Peninsula beaches along with supporting annual cleanup efforts.
This webinar is co-sponsored by NOAA’s Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary and Feiro Marine Life Center.
