Skagit MRC sponsors the annual Fidalgo Bay Day event, hosted at the Samish Indian Nation’s Fidalgo Bay Resort. 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 includes many interactive educational displays, hands on activities, games, kid-friendly crafts, Samish canoe rides, 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.
Skagit MRC partnered with the Friends of Skagit Beaches for the last three years to expand the Fidalgo Bay Day event to include Trail Tails discovery stations and passport activities and a chance to win prizes.
This popular community event wouldnt be possible without the help of our many volunteers and partners.
