Wonders of the Salish Sea

wonders of the salish sea 2023

presented by Transition Salt Spring, British Columbia

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.
