Celebrate National Estuaries Day and our own local estuary, Fidalgo Bay, with a day of fun, food, and education. Fidalgo Bay Day is sponsored by the Skagit Marine Resources Committee, Friends of Skagit Beaches, and other organizations listed on the flyer. We'll be offering activities both inside the Fidalgo Bay Resort Clubhouse and out on the Tommy Thompson Trail - something for everyone.
Inside you'll find lots of local organizations with information and fun activities for families and kids, free food samples, and the popular beach seining in the afternoon. Again this year, Trail Tales will be sponsoring a National Estuaries Day with stations along the trail to visit. Pick up your passport, visit the stations, and when you've finished come back to our information table to collect your prize.
Bring your family, friends, or just come yourself and celebrate our Fidalgo Bay. Did you know that Fidalgo Bay is an estuary? Did you know that it's one of the most important forage fish spawning areas in the state? Did you know Fidalgo Bay is one of seven aquatic reserves in Washington State? Come learn more about this and more. For more information visit our calendar listing for September 13th. See you there!
