The Wonders of the Salish Sea is an environmental education program designed to awaken a sense of wonder and foster a deep connection in the Salish Sea ecosystem.

The Salish Sea is one of the largest inland seas in the world. Discover the wonders of this uniquely biodiverse, yet fragile, marine ecosystem with the guidance of local marine scientists, naturalists, and environmentalists.

On this journey through the Salish Sea, you will meet magnificent marine mammals; beaked creatures (including octopuses!), small fish that have a big impact; and giants … in the seaweed world that is. All this will be grounded in the many stories that bring this wondrous ecosystem to life; Indigenous, science-based, and our very own.

Zoom Link will be sent out the week before.
