From November 21 through December 13, the Estuarium is joining more than 40 nonprofits in raising money to help make the South Puget Sound a stronger, more vibrant community for all.
Your gift will help us foster appreciation of our incredible estuary and marine resources in the Puget Sound. Visit https://givelocal.thecommunityfoundation.com/campaign/south-sound-estuary today, and make a donation that will be matched!
Our Give Local campaign is raising money for our amazing Estuarium facility, where more than 3,000 community members visit each year. Our facility features an astonishing diversity of live animals from intertidal environments in Puget Sound. The public can view live sea stars, crabs, sea cucumbers, chitons, fish, and much more in our saltwater tanks. We teach visitors how to identify animals, provide information about their adaptations, and inspire individuals to look for these creatures on our local beaches.
Your support is also needed to ensure we can continue to offer the Estuarium as a location for our K-12 field trips during which our educators provide lesson plans and activities that are aligned with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) standards and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) standards. Your donation will allow us to focus on providing field trip opportunities especially to underprivileged, challenged, and English as a Second Language (ESL) children.
Thank you so much for your support and generosity!
