As part of the 2015 Fall Film Series, Trail Tales funded two short, student-made films about topics relevant to Skagit County. The first video "Forage Fish of the Salish" was shown at the fall film series on October 23rd. You can view this film on the Friends of Skagit Beaches Vimeo channel at https://vimeo.com/145803507. Our second video about Skagit County Marine Reserves will be shown on Friday, November 20, before the feature film Mission Blue.
