Who are Sound Water Stewards

We are trained volunteers working in and around Island County for a healthy, sustainable Puget Sound environment through education, community outreach, stewardship, and citizen science.

From 1990 through 2015 we were a program under WSU Island County Extension, and were known as WSU Island County Beach Watchers.  We have been our own independent non-profit organization since Jan 1, 2016.

The annual Sound Waters one-day university is our largest educational/outreach activity - from the late spring kickoff to the March post-mortem - the team puts in over 3000 hours of volunteer time.

If you find the course offerings at Sound Waters interesting, consider joining our organization - classes begin each spring - and more information will become available on our website in the new year.
