Interested in volunteering for Seal Watch and assisting beachgoers by guiding interpretation of the Jenner harbor seal habitat, the largest on the Sonoma Coast?
Seal Watch volunteers are located at Goat Rock Beach near the harbor seal rookery (at the mouth of the Russian River) and the Jenner boat launch. Volunteers support safe viewings of the harbor seals during weekends in the spring and summer months through guided interpretation. Park visitors are informed about the harbor seals’ identification, natural history, their protection under the Marine Mammal Protection Act, and conservation with the help of a Seal Watch volunteer. Beachgoers from near and far are able to appreciate these magnificent marine mammals from a safe distance with the help of ropes, signs, and binoculars maintained by Seal Watch volunteers.
