 March 20th Lecture Canceled!

Friends of Skagit Beaches has announced cancellation of the lecture scheduled for Friday, March 20th Seals and Sea Lions: Pinnipeds of the Salish Sea.

The lecture is a part of Friends’ popular Winter Lecture Series held at the NWESD. The action is being taken as a precaution against the spread of the COVID-19 virus and out of concern for the health of attendees, volunteers, and the presenter. There are no plans to reschedule the event this season. At this time, the lecture scheduled for April 17th, Regional Array on the Sea Floor with Dr. Deborah Kelly, is going forward as planned.
