Learn more

Learn more about the marine treasures and fragile ecology of Puget Sound and do what you can to become a good steward of Skagit County's marine ecosystems and watersheds. Did you know that the Puget Sound is part of a large inland sea called the Salish Sea. This inland sea is managed by the United States, Canada, and First Nations tribes living along its shores through an international agreement.

Learn more about the Salish Sea and other interesting topics at our Fidalgo Shoreline Academy, a one-day symposium and day of learning for everyone.   Subject matter experts share their knowledge about a variety of fascinating subjects including science, history, culture, marine ecosystems, and more. 

Sign up for training opportunities in Skagit County like our Trail Tales program, the Skagit Marine Resources Committee's Salish Sea Stewards, adult education programs, or volunteer with the Coastal Volunteer Partnership at Padilla Bay.

Sign up for our quarterly newsletter to follow other news about Friends activities, Trail Tales programs, featured articles, and event information.
