October 21, 2017 - Anacortes, WA
NW Educational Services District Building
The Fidalgo Shoreline Academy is an annual educational symposium and fundraiser for Friends, which has been offered since 2013. This day-long event offers an opportunity to learn more about a wide variety of topics from excellent speakers. The Friends Board decided in early 2017 to move the time of the annual Fidalgo Shore Academy to fall instead of spring. Another change this year is that the venue for the event is being moved to the NW Educational Services District Building, where the Friends Lecture Series is hosted. This venue will offer more space and improved logistics and audio visual resources that we hope will enhance the experience for attendees, as well as the organizing team.
This year’s symposium will be held on October 21st and will feature a keynote speaker and three presentation sessions each offering three topics from which attendees can choose one. Again this year, the Friends Trail Tales project will be offering interpretive walks as part of the options for the presentation sessions. If you’ve attended in prior years you will be receiving information on purchasing tickets and if not, check our website in September for more information on how to register for this event.
