The fate of Washington’s iconic orcas is linked to abundant salmon runs and free-flowing rivers. Join us for an inspiring evening of learning and taking action! Patagonia Ballard is hosting Orcas Need Free-Flowing Rivers, an in-store event with Whale Scout and Defenders of Wildlife that will discuss how restoring rivers can save orcas from extinction. We’ll be joined by Florian Graner of Sealife Productions showing his film, Return of the King, as well as enjoying an engaging presentation by independent scientist, Monika Wieland-Shields of Orca Behavior Institute.
Meet up with an expert naturalist at a local park to search for and learn more about land based whale watching and the whales who live in the Salish Sea, in particular our endangered Southern Resident orcas. This event is hosted by Orca Network, Whale Scout and Friends of Lime Kiln Society (FOLKS), and is part of Orca Awareness Month! Learn more.
We're looking for volunteers to help a great program on San Juan Island! Help others learn about whales from the shores of the beautiful Westside Preserve. This program aims to turn whale watchers into stewards for the whales thanks to people like you! Come to an information session and training to get started.
