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 on our Trail Tales web pages or the ever-popular Winter Lecture Series. For even more exciting presentations attend our Fidalgo Shoreline Academy, a one-day symposium and day of learning for everyone, where subject matter experts share their knowledge about a variety of fascinating subjects including science, history, culture, marine ecosystems, and more.
Sign up for our quarterly newsletter to follow other news about Friends activities, read interesting featured articles, and get a heads up about upcoming events and what's happening in our local aquatic reserve.
Opportunities for volunteers to help protect, restore and study our local marine shorelines, waters, and watersheds abound here in Skagit County. What's your passion? You can join a citizen's stewardship committee to protect local ecosystems, get involved in citizen science projects working with scientists and other State agencies gathering important research data, help monitor the condition and health of local shorelines or watersheds, help educate the public on the wonders of our local marine treasures and how they can protect them, or help restore critical habitat areas. Sign up with one of the volunteer training programs listed above or contact us to find out how you can get involved!
