Nisqually Reach Aquatic Reserve: Then and Now.  Presented by Daniel Hull, Executive Director, Nisqually Reach Nature Center.

Daniel will share the story of this exciting project and how the community has gotten involved in small projects with big impacts that lead to the creation of the Nisqually Reach Aquatic Reserve.  To learn more:

January 15, Lynn Corliss, South Puget Sound Community College,  “Understanding South Sound Tides”

February 19, Janna Nichols from REEF and Laura James from Beneath the Looking Glass, LLC.  Join us and hear about their unique perspectives on engaging people in water quality issues such as working with divers for Jana and some of the film work Laura does in Puget Sound, to show that average folks can make a difference while doing things they love to do already. Puget Sound is in trouble, it is a wonderful and unique place, and we can each help protect and improve it!

March 19, Phil Kelley and Whittier Johnson for Black Hills Audubon, “Waterbirds & Shorebirds of Puget Sound: observations from the field”. Have you seen a change in the yearly migrations?

Free and open to the public thanks in part to The Russell Family Foundation,  Lassen Foundation/The Community Foundation of South Puget Sound, presenters donating their time,  and the many members/supporters who join SSEA to help keep these programs going.
