NOW is the time to support putting students at the helm, opening their minds and their hearts to the wonders of science and the sea — from the bottom of the food chain through a microscope, to the top of the food chain, breaching tens of feet off the stern. Salish Sea Expeditions offers students a compelling combination of adventure, self-learning, and discovery of new skills, confidence, friends and new possibilities.

THANK YOU for your support for getting students excited about science and strengthening their connection to the sea as a living part of their home. We look forward to seeing you at this fun event!

Patrons of Discovery Breakfast 2018

Testing the Waters: Investing in Access

We are enormously grateful for your support at our 10th annual breakfast on October 17, 2018.  Salish Sea Expeditions welcomed Lauren Kickham, Director of Impact for Paul G. Allen Philanthropies, managing philanthropic initiatives that include Ocean Health, Conservation and Climate Change, as our keynote speaker. Ms. Kickham was joined by former KING5 Meteorologist Jeff Renner, and Dr. Charles Eriksen, Professor, University of Washington School of Oceanography. Dr. Eriksen is a physical oceanographer who delights in observing and trying to understand the deep ocean using long range underwater autonomous Seagliders developed by his research group. Their discussion focused on exploration, problem-solving, and innovation in the marine environment.

Our emcee this year was Captain of the 2018 Race to Alaska’s winning team, Sail Like a Girl, Jeanne Goussev (click here for her bio and an article about Sail Like a Girl). Ms. Goussev is Managing Director of Fiduciary Services for Laird Norton Wealth Management and mother of a Salish alum. Read more ›
