Fidalgo Shoreline Academy - A Huge Success!
The 2014 Fidalgo Shoreline Academy was a big success on February 5th with 90 attendees, up 20 from last year! We hope those of you who attended enjoyed the day and were inspired by the many educational presentations and walks. Our keynote speaker, Dr. Deborah Kelley wowed the audience with an amazing presentation on deep sea volcanoes and vents with amazing photos and videos. She even brought some samples of volcanic rock from the ocean floor for us to see and feel.
Sorry you missed it or can't wait to learn more? You can learn more about the UW Interactive Oceans program that she is involved with and you can learn more about her research with Dr. John Delaney, our keynote speaker in 2012, on their research vessel the "Thomas Thompson" at the University of Washington's Interactive Oceans website. We're hoping to line up a visit for Friends members and volunteers to their ship when it comes to port. You can view the video here. http://uwtv.org/watch/PIUKej4_XMU/.
