The shores we live on and life-blood of our ecosystem . . .

    The Salish Sea is the unified bi-national ecosystem that includes Washington State’s Puget Sound, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the San Juan Islands as well as British Columbia’s Gulf Islands and the Strait of Georgia.

    We have unique opportunities to educate students and our communities about the value of protecting shellfish, marine resources and water quality. Shellfish fit into the context of environmental science, biology, paleontology, archaeology, geography, gardening and nutrition. Students are engaged and inspired by interacting with shellfish through hands-on activities, experiments, artwork and field experience. Sharing with others relates the global nature of shellfish and our connectedness to ocean life around the world. We are fortunate to have Puget Sound and the Salish Sea as our home and laboratory.  from  Puget Sound Restoration Fund link
