11/10/2011: "Marine Naturalist Workshop"

Attention Naturalists! The Whale Museum’s annual Marine Naturalist Gear-Down one-day workshop will be held on Friday, November 11 at the Grange Hall in Friday Harbor from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Registration will begin at 9:30 am.

The schedule for the day includes but is not limited to:

Cara Lachmuth of the University of British Columbia discussing her recent paper on potential effects of vessel exhaust emissions on Southern Resident killer whales;

Jessie Huggins, Stranding Coordinator for Cascadia Research, talking about gray whale necropsy results; and

Howard Garrett of Orca Network telling the story of Morgan, the killer whale calf rescued in the Netherlands whose fate is being determined in early November.

The day will conclude with a general meeting of the Salish Sea Association of Marine Naturalists (SSAMN) open to all current and future members.

This event is offered as continuing educational training for naturalists already working in the field; graduates of the Marine Naturalist Training Program, Beachwatchers, or equivalent; and members of SSAMN.

The registration fee is $20 for Whale Museum members or $25 for non-members. Registration is available now through The Whale Museum website and we encourage pre-registration.

For more information please contact Cindy at 360 378-4710 ext. 23. Founded in 1979, The Whale Museum’s mission is to promote stewardship of whales and the Salish Sea ecosystem through education and research.
