Mukilteo City Hall11930Cyrus Way,Mukilteo,WACommon Room
Ever wonder what marine mammals lurk in the Waters of Puget Sound, how dungeness crabs survive, what to do with that wet spot in your yard? If so, join WSU Snohomish county extension beach Watchers every first Wednesday night, from September through June, for exciting presentations by local experts! As we walk along the shoreline, we are surrounded by things we can’t see. They are hidden below the surface of the Water, beneath rocks, they are too small to see, or maybe they are processes that are too slow for us to see. But their presence is a key part of our environment. Join underwater videographer John Williams for a tour of this “invisible shoreline” and a discussion about how art, science, education, and recreation are involved in protecting and preserving the health ofPuget Sound. John will be showing excerpts from his tv series sea-inside: pacific northwest as well as newer footage that hasn’t yet been on the air. Time will be reserved at the end of the evening for audience participation discussions. Free event ~ no registration required ~ bring a friend!
