Salish Sea Stewards

Project Year (2014 - Present)

Skagit MRC's Salish Sea Stewards volunteer training program offers approximately 40 hours of training to citizens who are interested in learning about the marine environment and the different volunteer opportunities to help make a difference in your community.

Learn from many local experts on a variety of topics impacting the Salish Sea.  Classes are mostly lecture-style, but also include some hands-on field training.  The program helps match volunteers with projects of the MRC and our partners and will continue to keep volunteers engaged and informed of special events and other opportunities.
