Serving the people who manage, use and enjoy Washington's ocean and coasts
Issues and Events
- Geoduck Research Program: After six years of research, we've issued the final report on geoduck aquaculture for the Washington state legislature. Find out what we learned about geoduck farms and marine environments.
- 2014 Coastal Management and Sea Grant–NOAA Fisheries Fellowships are now open. For more information on applying for these and our other fellowships, visit our Student Support Programs page.
- Elwha River Restoration: KPLU-FM recently posted a story on Elwha River dam removals, featuring WSG's own Ian Miller. Ian and his team are out on slippery cobbles and deep, wet sand studying changes at the river's mouth.
- Spreading the Pumpout Gospel. WSG's Pumpout Washington staff continue their paddling campaign to educate boaters and marina operators about the importance of keeping raw onboard sewage out of lakes, straits and Puget Sound, and provide needed tools. Read the article.
- Orca Bowl's Around the Bend. Be part of a different March madness this spring: volunteer for Orca Bowl! Each year, high school students go head-to-head testing their ocean science knowledge. It's fast-paced and fun. Volunteer training is as brief as a single evening session. If interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Powel Property Shoreline Restoration. WSG helped the Bainbridge Island Land Trust remove bulkheads and restore habitat along 1,500 feet of beautiful Port Madison — the largest known restoration of residential shoreline on Puget Sound. One year later, the results are showing. Read the brochure.
- WOW. Washington on Water (WOW) is a Web-based tool to help teachers in kindergarten through 12th grade zero in on marine education resources throughout Washington—from interior watersheds to the outer coast. By facilitating connections among educators, scientists, industry, government and nonprofit organizations, WOW can help improve marine science literacy in the state. Take a test drive.
