Island Voyagers

Come explore two local islands as we experience marine life and learn about the natural history and geologic processes that helped shape them.

 

From the depths of the sea to the nearby mountain ranges, we will journey together to develop an understanding that the Salish Sea bio-region is full of life that is a reflection of the past.

 

Experience the abundant marine life the islands and their surroundings hold and connect to this incredible place we call home!
