We are honoring Orca Month in four ways in 2022: 

1. Beach clean-up

June 6th, 5-6PM @ Seafarers Memorial Park in Anacortes. Register here


2. Our Student Leadership Team is doing a "social media takeover" all month!

Follow us on Instagram and/or Facebook to see all of the incredible content they are bringing to you each day!

3. Orca Action Month Bingo!

Download and print the Orca Month Bingo page here. See how many Bingos you can get!

4. Haiku Contest!

If you love the Southern Resident orcas as much as we do, celebrate this iconic species with us in an Orca Action Month Haiku writing-adventure! Download the information here (or see images below).


Haiku Contest!


To “play” along with us:

1. Download the 4 page PDF here (or see 4 images below);

2. Read about the Salish Sea and who the Southern Resident orcas are;

3. Learn what a Haiku is and how you can write one yourself, using the correct number of syllables and lines.

4. Brainstorm what you know and love about orcas to help you come up with some descriptive words you can use in your Haiku on the template page.

5. Write your Haiku on the document we have created or write your own on a blank sheet of paper!

6. Submit them to us no later than end-of-day Monday June 27th –!

We are going to pick a winner in three categories: (1) family,  (2) youth (<18yo), and (3) adult (>18yo).


If your Haiku is selected, you will win a special prize and have your Haiku featured in our July electronic newsletter!
