The 6th annual Fidalgo Shoreline Academy is coming up on Saturday, October 21, 2017 from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM at the Northwest Educational Services Building, 1601 R Avenue, Anacortes. If you've enjoyed other Friends of Skagit Beaches events such as our Winter Lecture Series or Trail Tales interperpretive programs, you won't want to miss this year's Fidalgo Shoreline Academy. This year we have a lineup of top-notch presenters including keynote speaker Dr. Phoebe Barnard, Executive Director of the Pacific Biodiversity Institute, presenting on the alarming decline in global biodiversity and how we can respond proactively in a way that gives as many species as possible a chance to survive the gauntlet of the next 300 years of dizzying evironmental change. In addition, the event features three breakout sessions with 10 options for you to choose from. Want to know more? Go to our Fidalgo Shoreline Academy page where you can read about each speaker and their presentation.
