Register now for Nov. 9 class on Puget Sound

Nov 07, 2013

The third annual “Sound Living” class – a one-day university for everyone – sponsored by the WSU Snohomish County Beach Watchers will be on Saturday, Nov. 9, at Everett Community College.

The keynote panel for the class titled “Points of Hope for Puget Sound” will explore the strides made to protect and restore the wildlife and landscape of the region for all of us to enjoy.

This theme will also be carried through the 24 presentations offered in six tracks, including climate, innovations, water, wildlife, ecosystems and stewardship at home.

Experts will give the latest information on topics, including these:

• Tidal Energy in Admiralty Inlet

• The Giant Pacific Octopus

• Demystifying Organics

• Underwater Photography as a Sound Environmental Tool

• Lakes in Snohomish County

• Puget Sound’s Glacial History of Climate Change

• Qwuloolt Estuary Restoration Project

More than a dozen organizations will bring information on their own conservation efforts – making this class great for learning about all the work being done on behalf of Puget Sound.

This year, there will also be a raffle for donated items, such as tickets to Experience Music Project and Seattle Aquarium, as a fundraiser for WSU Extension Beach Watchers.

Also, on display will be the artwork from “The Points of Hope for Puget Sound” art contest.

Register online and check out the full offerings at http://beachwatchers.net/snohomish/soundliving/2013, or register the day of the class for $40.
