WSC, NOAA Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, Education
NOAA’s Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary (OCNMS) encompasses more than 3,189 square miles of Washington State coastal waters. This area contains a rich array of habitats and marine life. The Sanctuary program provides protection of these natural resources through research and education, which foster public understanding and stewardship of this nationally significant marine area. OCNMS education team requires the service of a Washington Service Corps AmeriCorps Member with development and implementation of education and outreach programs consistent with Ocean Literacy Action Plan in the 2011 Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary Final Management Plan (see: This position will be monitored and managed through regular verbal and email contact with OCNMS Education and Outreach Specialist. This Position is contingent on funding. The nature of the contract requires close coordination with NOAA partners, including Feiro Marine Life Center and Washington CoastSavers. Due to the necessity of utilizing specific files and conducting field trips, much of the work involved will take place in the offices of OCNMS. The Sanctuary will provide a workstation at the OCNMS office in Port Angeles, WA, including access to a computer and other IT equipment, telephone, copier and facsimile machine for the position. For off-site outreach activities and meetings, the AmeriCorps Member will have access to a government vehicle.

Member Duties : The AmeriCorps member will implement NOW (North Olympic Watershed) Science Education & Sanctuary Volunteer Stewardship activities. These activities will allow Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary to reach approximately 2000 individuals in the region through education and outreach activities. The NOW Science Education Program will reach approximately 1000 students, providing experiential education programs focused on Olympic Coast’s marine environment and the issue of marine debris. Many of these students are from remote and economically depressed regions, including Tribal communities, who do not otherwise have access to the resources necessary to provide students with hands-on marine science education. The Sanctuary Volunteer Stewardship Program will enhance volunteer recruitment and volunteer experience associated with WA CoastSavers sponsored beach cleanups, involving more than 1000 volunteers annually in the removal of approximately 20+ tons of marine debris from WA beaches.
