Sound Waters is a wonderful experience every year. Overall, I am very impressed with the high degree of organization and planning that makes this event so inspiring and such a great learning experience. -- 6th Year Attendee

People who come to Sound Waters are really happy with their experience ...

1st Year Attendee, 2013 -- This is fantastic! I had no idea this existed until I heard about it last month. The quality and caliber of the classes is more than anything I've seen available in western Washington outside of the UW. I intend to attend next year for sure.

3rd Year Attendee, 2014 -- This is a glorious day---it is so great to be with other concerned citizens active on behalf of our environment. Thank you for all the obvious effort you put into this. It is much appreciated.

6th Year Attendee, 2014 -- This is one of the most important and valuable programs I've known. It was encouraging to see so many people interested and concerned about environmental issues and viewing Sound Waters as being a credible source of information.

2nd Year Attendee, 2015 -- With so many amazing class choices for each session I found it difficult to just choose one out of the many classes available because there were probably 8 or 10 offered classes I wanted to take per session. Fantastic choice of classes and outstanding instructors !!
