Oil Spill Awareness and Response Support (OSARS) Volunteers
September 19 & 26, 2020  (Download the OSARS Training Flyer) | Click to Register 

OSARS Volunteers is designed to engage and prepare volunteers to assist with oil spills in the Puget Sound region. Each year, over 20 billion gallons of oil and other hazardous chemicals are transported in Puget sound. Trained volunteers can support spill response and assessment.


We want to recruit volunteers from organizations around Puget Sound. These include WSU Beach Watchers, Beach Naturalists and Shore Stewards, MRC, Audubon Society, COASST, PAWS, and many more. Volunteers from diverse organizations will help build a network to respond to an oil spill emergency.
