Marine Protected Area Ambassador Training
Welcome to our Marine Protected Area Ambassador Training! Our training will provide a broad overview of Nature Collective with an emphasis on our Swami’s + Cardiff State Beach Ambassador Programs. You can learn how to protect these Marine Protected Areas (MPA) by collecting data on human use of the coast and ocean for the state-wide MPA Watch community science program. Volunteers will also get to know more about the audiences and experiences you will interact with.
– Commit to volunteering at least once a month.
– Be able to walk outside, on the beach, on uneven terrain.
– This training will include both classroom and field training.
Our partners support Nature Collective’s MPA Volunteer Ambassador program: California State Parks + City of Encinitas + WILDCOAST
