I love the diversity of exhibits and classes we could participate in. It was so much fun! -- 1st Year Attendee

Sound Waters University has been bringing together people passionate about life in Puget Sound since the early 1990s, and now attracts 600+ people yearly. No prior knowledge is required to attend - just an interest in learning about and taking care of this amazing place that we call home.

Selected reviews ...

The organization of this event is stupendous. Everything from on-line registration to the-day-of to recycling, clean-up and evaluation are just great. Everyone involved in the planning and implementation has my deepest gratitude. Well done! (SW.2016, 4th/5th Year Attendee)

I learned tons of new facts and enjoyed my first experience with Sound Waters greatly. I was especially impressed by the pedigree of presenters across the topic spectrum. (SW.2017, 1st year Attendee)

I was impressed with the quality of information. Because I work in environmental science, I wasn't sure if the classes would be dull and too simple. This was not the case and I really enjoyed the questions asked by other attendees. (SW.2017, 1st Year Attendee)

Makes my February! (SW.2017, 2nd/3rd Year Attendee)

Fantastic conference, extremely (!) well planned and a joy to attend. Can't wait until next year. (SW.2017, 4th/5th Year Attendee)

Great job as usual. I depend on you to keep me up to date on topics. I always learn a lot. Thanks to everyone who dedicated their time to produce this outstanding day. (SW.2017, 6th+ Year Attendee)
