Join us for our 8th annual great day of learning and discovery brought to you by Friends of Skagit Beaches. Spend a day with top scientists and local community leaders presenting on a wide range of topics. This year our Keynote Speaker will be Jack Hartt, who retired in 2017 after 40 years in the Washington State Park system – 14 of those years as the Park Manager at Deception Pass State Park. He will present “Love and Beauty in the Time of Turbulence”. Basing his talk on reflections from a new forest monitoring project in the Anacortes Community Forest Lands, Jack will emphasize how we have within ourselves and among ourselves the resources to make a difference and will weave together the rhythms of hope and encouragement that keeps us harmonizing in the coming turbulent times. Choose 3 from 6 breakout sessions such as “Sharks of Washington State”; “Wetlands: What are They and Why should we Care?”; “Tying Indigenous Science to Modern Day Research and Restoration”; and much more. Registration is required. By mail, registration deadline is Oct. 14 and online is Oct. 17th. Please get your tickets soon!
