Becoming a member of SSEA is one of the most effective ways to support our organization. We depend on memberships and the generosity of our patrons. We are a 501 (c)(3), which means that all our support comes from grants, donations, sponsorships and memberships from people like you, who want to see strong marine and estuary education opportunities available for residents and visitors of all ages and socioeconomic status. We do this work for the joy of seeing people of all ages light up and smile as they experience and learn about the amazing diversity of the Puget Sound marine environment. Your membership supports our qualified staff who work to develop STEM curriculum for visiting school children and also funds our programs such as the popular free “Meet the Beach” beach naturalist summer experiences. Memberships keep the lights and air conditioning on at the Estuarium, fuel plans for future aquarium exhibit expansions, such as octopus, jelly fish and eel grass tanks. SSEA members can take pride in knowing that they contributed to the preservation of our native green and blue spaces!
