Volunteers are at the heart of our organization. They help the Estuarium support programs to educate our community about the Puget Sound and its estuaries and marine environment. Joining an Estuairum Team is a great way to get involved in our programs. Teams meet monthly, and members are asked to dedicate at least four hours per month to their committee goals. Please contact Susan Shelton at if you are interested in joining any of these groups.
