Welcome the Whales Festival (virtual)
Dates/Times: Friday April 16 6:00-8:00 pm; Saturday April 17 2:00-5:00
Welcome the "Sounders" gray whales to Puget Sound!
Each spring roughly a dozen gray whales stop to feed on ghost shrimp before continuing their migration north to the Arctic. Help us celebrate their return, while learning more about these fascinating whales and the importance of Puget Sound ghost shrimp.
This year's festival will be held on Zoom and will include:
Friday evening Art Night Fundraiser - learn to make a Zentangle gray whale and help support Orca Network
Saturday afternoon virtual parade, whale watch and research presentations.
Participate in our virtual parade by taking a photo of yourself (or your pet) dressed as your favorite marine animal. Send the photo to firstname.lastname@example.org
