Only for Sound Waters University registrants, requires event + field trip ticket. Penn Cove and nearby beaches were richly populated from “time immemorial” by Lower Skagit Peoples who settled on their shores; harvested from its rich waters, forests, and prairies; and lived in complex relationships with members of both nearby and distant tribes. This tour will explore where and how these tribes of the Lower Skagit lived before and during the early years of the arrival of non-native cultures.
