Ecotour Fundraisers

Thank you for coming aboard and supporting a fundraiser for our student programs, research, and scholarship funds. We are so grateful for our village of supporters and cannot wait to learn and experience all the magnificent birds of the Salish Sea together!  

We are so passionate about introducing our community to the incredible classroom right outside our doorstep. Our hope is that our programs initiate a desire to protect and restore the Salish Sea. We believe experiential lessons combined with marine conservation education is essential to producing a healthy marine ecosystem.
