The Salish Sea faces intense challenges. Human-caused pollution and over-use have degraded marine ecosystems. Port Susan, Skagit Bay, Stillaguamish River and Saratoga Passage are ecologically sensitive waters. We will teach sustainability actions and give out a hand lens to all participants to take a closer look, plus a Junior Steward booklet for youth. Everyone can play a role in stewardship.
