Whether you just moved here, or you have been a resident for many years, or you are just visiting, something drew you to the Pacific Northwest. Sound Waters University will inspire you to dig in and become rooted.
Do you yearn for mental and spiritual connections, are you fraught with feeling hopelessness and apathy? Jack Burchard felt that way. It took a close friend to suggest to Jack, “Jack, just do something!” This jolt led him to Sound Waters University where he found over 700 participants in 2019.
He recalls, “The energy and opportunities flowed like a flood tide. The Keynote Hillary Franz talked about “uniting to protect our waters.” Exploring the exhibits, he discovered the SWS Volunteer Training program and met active Sound Water Stewards. After briefly considering the demanding schedule and commitment, he received a lot of information and encouragement from Stewards standing by including Lee Badovinus, Jack decided to apply that very afternoon. He had found his way to just do something. Jack recommends, “Start now, where you are, with what you have.”
We thank the sponsors whose financial support helps bring you this special learning experience.
