The Wonders of the Salish Sea is an environmental education program designed to awaken a sense of wonder and foster a deep connection in the Salish Sea ecosystem.

Register here: https://wondersofthesalishsea.com/

The Salish Sea is one of the largest inland seas in the world. Discover the wonders of this uniquely biodiverse, yet fragile, marine ecosystem with the guidance of local marine scientists, naturalists, and environmentalists. Topics range from magnificent marine mammals, beaked creatures (including octopuses!), small fish that have a big impact, and giants in the seaweed world that is. All this is grounded in the many stories that bring this wondrous ecosystem to life, from Indigenous, to science-based, and our own.

4 Monday evenings – March 27, April 3, 17, & 24
7:00 – 9:00 PM PDT
Online via Zoom

$25.00 or donation.

Here’s our awesome schedule! Registrants will receive detailed descriptions of these presentations, or email us to request a copy.

1. Your Salish Sea Story. Mira Lutz Castle. MSc
2. Origin Stories of the Salish Sea. Chris Arnett, PhD

So since Transition Saltspring is a registered charity, and the flora and fauna of the Salish Sea is in our wheelhouse as West Coast kayakers, I'm going to let this post stand. But in future, if you'd like to post anything that involves asking our members for money (mandatory or optional), please PM me first. Thanks.
