Project Period: 2004 - Present
Fidalgo Bay Day is Skagit MRC's signature educational event that has taken place each year since 2004. The purpose of this free educational event is to increase public awareness of the marine environment and foster environmental stewardship.
Hundreds of visitors, mostly local, attend this event each year. Fidalgo Bay Day provides a variety of fun interactive activities for kids of all ages. The activites vary from year to year, but typically include interactive educational displays, games, kid-friendly crafts, complimentary seafood samples, Samish no-host salmon BBQ and so much more. Some of the popular children’s activities include fish prints, marine creature stamps, and button making. The Shannon Point Marine Center’s mobile marine sea creature touch tank and the beach seine demonstration are also two very popular hands-on activities for the entire family. The Friends of Skagit Beaches has planned and coordinated the Discovery Passport Activity for several years now. Kids and adults get a chance to win prizes for participating and hopefully learn something new.
This popular community event wouldnt be possible without the help of our many volunteers and partners.
Save the date! The next Fidalgo Bay Day event will take place Saturday, August 24, 2019, 11am-3pm at the Fidalgo Bay Resort in Anacortes. Stay tuned for more information!
