Project Years (2004 - Present)

We hope you will join us to celebrate the 20th anniversary of our annual Fidalgo Bay Day event on Saturday, August 24, 2024, and learn something new about our amazing local estuaries and marine life. The event will be held from 11 am – 3 pm, at the Samish Indian Nation’s Fidalgo Bay Resort, located at 4701 Fidalgo Bay Road in Anacortes. 

Similar to previous years, it is anticipated that over 300 people will be attending this year and take part in the Samish Indian Nation's popular educational beach seining demonstration, touch live marine critters in Shannon Point Marine Center’s undersea zoo and a real whale skull from Deception Pass State Park, look through microscopes, get creative at the kid friendly craft tables, play fun games, win prizes, and learn about local projects and volunteer opportunities at the many educational exhibits staffed by local agencies and organizations.

In addition to all the fun activities, visitors will get to fill their appetites with a fabulous no-host traditional Coast Salish salmon BBQ lunch and taste complimentary samples of local seafood provided by Taylor Shellfish, Bobs Chowder, and Adrift!  

Fidalgo Bay Day is Skagit MRC's signature educational event that has taken place each year since 2004. It is supported by many partners and volunteers.  The purpose of this free event is to increase public awareness of the marine environment and foster environmental stewardship. 

This event would't happen without our wonderful volunteers or the support of the Samish Indian Nation and Friends of Skagit Beaches.  We are currently seeking volunteers to help plan and carry out this year's 2024 Fidalgo Bay Day event! For more information contact
