Sound Living – A 1-day ‘Communiversity’ on Puget Sound

Oct 03, 2013

The 3rd Annual “Sound Living - A One Day University for Everyone” will be on Saturday, Nov. 9, at Everett Community College.

Join in for the Keynote Panel titled “Points of Hope for Puget Sound” when they’ll explore the strides made to protect and restore the wildlife and landscape of the region for all 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 bring the latest 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 – a great place to learn about all the work being done on behalf of Puget Sound.

This year, they will also offer a small raffle for donated items such as tickets to Experience Music Project and Seattle Aquarium, six bags of Green Mountain Coffee and a Seventh Generation home cleaner basket, as a fundraiser for WSU Extension Beach Watchers.

Lastly, they’ll be showing the artwork from “The Points of Hope for Puget Sound” art contest to further inspire all.

The fee to attend is $30 per person ($20 for active military or students) if you register by Nov. 3.  Walk-In registrations are $40 on the day of the event.  Lunch can be purchased or you can bring your own.

Presentations are filled on a first come/first served basis, so register early.
