Congratulations to Washington Sea Grant Marine Education Specialist Maile Sullivan for earning the 2018 Outstanding Informal Educator of the Year award! Maile has worked with the awarding group, the Northwest Aquatic and Marine Educators, for many years and is currently the co-director of the WA chapter. Great work Maile!
And a second congratulations to WSG Boating Specialist Aaron Barnett – he was recognized for outstanding environmental leadership by Northwest Yachting in their January issue. Barnett works closely with Washington State Parks & Recreation Commission on a Clean Vessel Act program called Pumpout Washington, educating Washington boaters on options for safely removing sewage from holding tanks.
