Salish Sea Day of Action for the North Olympic Peninsula
Free and open to the public
Port Townsend, Wash.— On September 15th, people from across the North Olympic Peninsula will gather together to raise awareness on how we all can help Save the Salish Sea at an event featuring song, art, and education. Musician Dana Lyons will perform his original songs about the Salish Sea, while leaders in the community talk about the challenges the Salish Sea faces and how we all can protect it. The family-friendly event will also include inter-generational art creation and information tables.
Our local community is joining other communities around the bioregion to build broader awareness and advocacy for protection for our Sacred Sea and all living creatures. While the sea itself may separate us physically, we are uniting to face these growing threats together. #WeAretheWater
The event starts at 2 pm and goes until 4 pm, at Port Townsend Pope Marine Park at 1000 Madison St, Port Townsend. Songs and speakers will be interspersed, and a family-friendly art project as well information tables will be available throughout the two hours. Speakers include:
- Deborah Stinson, Mayor, City of Port Townsend
- Janet Marx, Chair of North Olympic Peninsula Sierra Club
The event is being organized by the Sierra Club North Olympic Peninsula Group and Local 20/20, in partnership with organizations throughout the peninsula.
The organizers strongly encourage participants to bike, bus, walk or carpool to the event.
