CONSERVATION IN FOCUS: SALISH SEA & SAN JUAN ISLANDS of WASHINGTON
September 29-October 6, 2013 
8 Days/7 Nights
With Jennifer Hahn, Dr. Geoff Hammerson, Audrey
Benedict, Bob Rozinski & Wendy Shattil, Sarah Drummond 
ABOARD the Classic beautiful wood boat: M/V Catalyst  

Thousands of years before Europeans first arrived in the Pacific Northwest, the Coastal Salish people flourished along the shores of one of the most biologically rich inland seas in the world— the Salish Sea. Named in honor of those first inhabitants, the Salish Sea straddles the Canadian border and includes Washington’s Puget Sound, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the San Juan Islands, and British Columbia’s Gulf Islands and the Strait of Georgia.  

Once again, our “classroom afloat” is the superbly comfortable M/V Catalyst, a 76-foot lovingly restored wooden boat built in 1932 as the floating laboratory for the University of Washington. Jennifer Hahn, one of the Northwest’s foremost naturalists, kayak guides, and an award-winning author, joins our naturalist team at the helm and will also share the cultural history of the coastal First Peoples as well as the culinary delights to be found at the sea’s edge. Guest scientists for this voyage include Dr. Joe Gaydos, director of the SeaDoc Society, a science-based marine conservation program associated with the UC Davis Veterinary Medicine/Wildlife Health Center, and Russel Barsh and Madrona Murphy, founders of Kwiáht, the Center for the Historical Ecology of the Salish Sea. To extend our learning beyond the intertidal zone, Dr. Gaydos and his dive team will conduct a “virtual dive” for us—transmitting live coverage of the magical deep-sea world to a big-screen TV on board the Catalyst for us all to enjoy—without having to don a wet suit!
  
Our goal is to create a Conservation if Focus SALISH SEA photo book that truly captures the essence of the Salish Sea region—as well as the environmental challenges looming on the horizon. Refine your natural history understanding, be inspired, and learn how you can make a difference!
Price: $2,550 (includes a $500 deposit)
Group Size: 12 
Price Includes: 5 nights/6 days aboard the M/V Catalyst, all meals and beverages (including wine and beer), 2 nights’ lodging (September 29 & October 5 in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island), two group dinners ashore, all instruction by our photographic and naturalist leaders, guest lecturers, full sea kayak outfitting, Catalyst’s four-person crew and all gratuities, a copy of our group-produced photo book, and a copy of Jennifer’s Pacific Feast.
