South Sound Estuary Association has great programs and events that need your sponsorship! Listed below are a few sponsorship opportunities:
Puget Sound Estuarium:
The Estuarium is a marine discovery center which encourages learning through observation, interaction, and play! Our large estuarine aquariums house a number of local Puget Sound species, which act as ambassadors to visitors from all over the globe, some of whom have never even been to a beach! Through the exhibits at the Estuarium, people of all ages can learn something new. We offer field trips, educational birthday parties, event hosting and more. The best thing is that the Estuarium is always changing, so it’s never the same experience twice!
Meet the Beach:
Our highly trained beach naturalists are available on several state park beaches during low tides in order to help participants Meet the Beach. This is a free program for all ages and is our most popular summer program!
Participants gather on the pier at Boston Harbor Marina as it gets dark and peer into the water using underwater lights. The lights attract all kinds of creatures to the surface, where participants can use dip nets to take a closer look! Our educators assist in the capture and release of all specimens, and talk about ecology, zoology, ecosystems, and answer questions with enthusiasm!
Discovery Speakers Series: An excellent way to spend an evening, our Discovery Speaker Series is an illuminating free program open to the public. A diverse range of topics regarding our local habitats appeals to scientists and laymen alike.
SSEA the Sound: A fun, three-hour exploration of the South Puget Sound. This popular cruise will include special guest speakers, science discovery opportunities, music, and more!
Thanks4Giving: An evening of celebration for all of the Estuarium’s wonderful programs and volunteers. Sponsors are needed to help keep this event free and memorable to all participants!
