TO SAVE OUR SHORELINES OF WASHINGTON
Educating young people through experiential learning.
WHAT WE DO!
Save Our Shorelines provides K-8 school presentations and field trips focusing on marine mammals, and provides the educational curriculum for various youth programs at the Sunset Bay Wharf including Beach Camp MMA and Summer Law+ for high school students. Our educational components attract students and staff from around the country and the world.
LIFE SKILLS AND LEARNING
Our programs are designed not only to teach but to impart important life skills in resourcefulness and knowledge of getting around in our natural and human made worlds
Learning brought to life
Underwater as well as above
Our world class location on the Sunset Bay Pier in Edmonds allows us incredible access to shoreline habitats
Through the generous support of our donor organizations SOS programs include undersea walks with specialized equipment rarely available in this area.
Save Our Shorelines runs on the enthusiasm and expertise of our volunteer community. Our volunteer program allows persons with appropriate skills sets to get involved in SOS programs and earn access and use of facilities at our partner organizations including the Sunset Bay Wharf. Volunteers help with educational projects throughout the year, as well as rolling up their sleeves to keep our facilities in shape.
We love our Marine Mammals
See more than meets the eye
Porpoises, Seals & Sea Lions abound in the waters of Puget Sound, and the SOS MMA program endeavors to keep it that way with habitat education for young people
In habitat biology its the little things that matter, and our MMA program and presentations excel in making young people aware of the of the microscopic world of building blocks under their feet for the marine ecosystem
