Looking Back on 50 Years: 1990s Teachers on an Educational Wetlands Tour

August 13, 2021

In honor of the 50th anniversary of Washington Sea Grant and back-to-school month, we’re digging through our photo archive to share moments from our program’s history. Here is a photo from 1994 of teachers taking an educational wetlands tour of the UW Arboretum in Seattle, Washington. Educational activities are a key aspect of WSG’s mission to help people and marine life thrive. By partnering with educators, WSG brings valuable opportunities and resources to the K-12 community – expanding awareness of and engagement in the marine and coastal environment, improving ocean literacy, and fostering interest in marine-related careers.
