The Haystack Rock Awareness Program invites volunteers to join them daily on the beach during low tide Friday, Feb. 9, through the end of October. The program is entering its 33rd season on the beach.
Having educated more than a million visitors and thousands of students over the years, the program’s mission is to “protect, through education, the intertidal and bird ecology of the marine garden and National Wildlife Refuge at Haystack Rock.”
HRAP Rocky Shore environmental interpreters will be on the beach during low tides to educate visitors at Haystack Rock about biodiversity found on and around the rock. Programs will change with the season, with the arrival and departure of various animals to the area.
There is no minimum time commitment required. Contact Lisa Habecker, education and volunteer coordinator and 15-year HRAP veteran, by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (503-436-8064). Teachers, instructors or groups interested in a field trip or tour of the rock should contact Habecker as well.
