Meet Our Team
The Salish Sea School is committed to cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity, inclusion, and connectedness. We are able to grow and learn better together with a diverse team. We welcome the unique contributions that one can bring in terms of their education, opinions, culture, ethnicity, race, sex, gender identity and expression, nation of origin, age, languages spoken, veteran’s status, color, religion, disability, sexual orientation and beliefs.
We are stronger together with the collective sum of individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, innovation, self-expression, and talent which ultimately brings about a healthier planet.
Guardians Jr. - Homeschool Edition is designed to introduce students to the ocean and local marine life in the Salish Sea.
It is the perfect program to spark interest in marine ecosystems and understand how it is all connected, from water quality to whales.
Please bring your own lunch and snack.

Final project presentation
Each day's lesson will focus on the specific topic listed, however we never can predict what marine life each day will bring! The ultimate goal is to experience the animals' ecosystem and understand how students can become leaders in marine conservation - seeing whales (or any wildlife!) is never guaranteed.
