Fidalgo Bay DayAugust 12, 2017
Come join us for a free, fun, family outing at our 14th annual Fidalgo Bay Day event on Saturday, August 12 from 11 AM – 3 PM, at the Samish Indian Nation’s beautiful Fidalgo Bay Resort, located at 4701 Fidalgo Bay Road in Anacortes. Celebrate National Estuaries Day and the beauty, history, and wonderful marine life with the Friends of Skagit Beaches Trail Tales docent stations along the Tommy Thompson Trail. Take part in our popular beach seining demonstration, touch live marine critters in Shannon Point Marine Center’s undersea zoo, get creative at the kid friendly craft tables, play fun games, and learn about local projects and volunteer opportunities at the many educational exhibits staffed by local agencies and organizations.
In addition to all of the fun activities, you will get the chance to taste complimentary samples of seafood chowder prepared by local restaurateurs and shellfish from Taylor’s, BBQ’d to perfection by our volunteers. You will also have the opportunity to enjoy a fabulous no-host traditional salmon BBQ lunch offered by members of the Samish Indian Nation.
Fidalgo Bay Day is sponsored by the Skagit County Marine Resources Committee (MRC) and other partners, and is funded in part by the United States Environmental Protection Agency through the Puget Sound Partnership. For more information contact Tracy Alker, Skagit MRC Coordinator, (360) 416-1462.
