Participants at the 2010 Sanctuary Advisory Council Summit
Being successful in that mission requires the help of many. Visitors and users of sanctuary
resources must be mindful of their potential impacts to fragile sanctuary resources. We must
carefully match resources with our partners in resource management, whose missions complement
those of the sanctuary.
We also need to hear from a wide variety of people who have a critical stake in the health of the
Olympic Coast. For that reason, Congress requires that we maintain a
Sanctuary Advisory Council
represent broad interests and advise the sanctuary superintendent on our work. Browse to our
Sanctuary Advisory page to learn about the council, its purpose, its meeting schedule and, most of
all, its members, who commit to helping us protect the sanctuary for future generations.
Discovery Center volunteers Jim and Becky Jewell greet visitors.
Another way that you can get involved with the sanctuary is to volunteer your time working with us
on various day-to-day activities. These range from once-a-year beach cleanups to regular shifts in
the Olympic Coast Discovery Center. Other specific projects come up from time to time in the office
or in the field, working beside our staff. Browse our
pages for more information.
