New Event: Hosted by The SeaDoc Society: Culture and Cuisine of Shoreline Edibles

About The SeaDoc Society (from The SeaDoc Society Website):

The SeaDoc Society works to ensure the health of marine ecosystems through research and education.  We focus primarily on the inland waters of the Pacific Northwest, known as the Salish Sea. The Salish Sea includes:
  • Puget Sound
  • The Northwest Straits
  • The Georgia Basin
We also have new regional initiatives focused on marine ecosystem health in California and in Baja California, including efforts to clean up derelict fishing gear. The problems in our ecosystem are well known: Pollution and habitat degradation are increasing; native populations are declining and disappearing.

The SeaDoc Society provides solutions to problems facing marine wildlife and ecosystems
