The San Juan Island Library, in collaboration with Griffin Bay Bookstore, presents the paperback book launch of Joseph K. Gaydos’ and Audrey DeLella Benedict’s Explore the Salish Sea: A Nature Guide for Kids. Refreshments courtesy of the Friends of the Library.
Meet one of the authors, Science Director of the SeaDoc Society and marine veterinarian Dr. Joe Gaydos, to hear about the launch of this book that hopes to inspire children to learn about the unique ecosystem that encompasses the coastal waters from Seattle’s Puget Sound up to the British Columbia. Network with local colleagues about ideas to integrate this new book with engaging activities that meet the Next Generation Science Standards. Lunch and clock hours provided.
We hope to find out about teacher interest in infusing existing curricula with local context and what teachers need in order to facilitate the dissemination of the text with a lens for inspiring youth to care about where they live and understand their connection to this place.
Participants registered by the end of July will receive a free copy of the book to explore before the workshop, bringing ideas to share.
We will celebrate the top photos from the Salish Sea in Focus photography contest at a gala at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle. The event will feature photo projected across an IMAX screen and photographers and scientists sharing stories about the photos and the sea. Food and drinks will be served. Photo by: Nathan Bawaan
On July 14, 2018 SeaDoc will hold its annual Wine and Sea Auction fundraiser on Orcas Island from 5-8pm. This special event will be a unique opportunity for 150-175 philanthropists to combine their appreciation for fine wine with their desire to heal the Pacific Northwest’s inland sea. Premiere wines from the cellars of the region’s collectors, purveyors, and vintners will be auctioned by Jay Fiske; while attendees will enjoy wines from our friends at Coeur de Terre Vineyard. All proceeds will benefit the SeaDoc Society’s work in the Pacific Northwest.
