Due to COVID-19 restrictions in 2020, Friends had to cancel our annual fundraising events, so support from our members for 2021 is critical for us. Your membership donation helps support programs and projects that educate, engage, and promote stewardship of our local Skagit marine environment. As a member, you will receive our quarterly newsletter and be invited to special events.
Please renew your membership for 2021!
