The Friends Board made the decision to move our annual symposium from spring to a fall date. We plan to host the 2017 Fidalgo Shoreline Academy in October. We are also planning to move the event venue to the Northwest Educational Services District building by Seafarers Memorial Park in Anacortes.
Our team of volunteers is already working on plans for the event and you can be sure that we’ll be offering an excellent lineup of speakers and educational displays. Again, this year we plan to offer a top-notch keynote speaker followed by three sessions each offering three interesting topic choices. Each session will offer a choice between two indoor presentations or the opportunity to join our Trail Tales team for an interpretive walk for those who want to get outside and stretch their legs. The Seafarers Memorial Park and Cap Sante Marina offer a great location for new interpretive topics that we haven’t been offered before.
Stay tuned for more information in our next newsletter. You can also check our website for updates later in the summer at this link to the FSA page of our website. If you’ve attended in the past, you should receive an email notification when registration time is approaching.
