License to Explore Seafood Bash & Auction

Students taking the lead on science aboard the S/V Carlyn

Thank you to our community of generous donors for making our License to Explore Seafood Bash & Auction a wonderful success. You helped us raise more than $129,000 for marine education on the Salish Sea!

To see photos from this year’s event, click here.

On March 2, 2018, we will celebrate hands-on learning that invites students to become scientists and mariners on the waters of Puget Sound. Join us for delicious local food and libations, our infamous crab races, a spectacular dessert dash and thrilling FUNdraiser to support hands-on programs that teach applied STEM learning, leadership skills and engage a lifelong appreciation for science.

This year we’re borrowing from 007 for an evening that celebrates daring feats of exploration, curiosity and intrigue(ing) science learning. Plus, you can bet there will be cheesy skits that make you laugh. Come in your best spy outfit, dust off your “shaken not stirred” quips, or simply come for the great company and MOST IMPORTANTLY to support our amazing students. Your mission: join us in support of marine education!
