From Watersheds to Whitecaps

Community Event

When you walk in the woods or on the beach, there’s an abundance of interesting creatures and habitats. Yet the most fascinating things are nearly invisible – the relationships. At 2 pm, John F. Williams with Still Hope Productions Inc. highlights some of these relationships with excerpts from his collection of films and his new publication “Salish Magazine." He’ll illustrate that the relationships aren’t just random…there actually is a “system” in ecosystem. Best for ages 10 and older. Related crafts all day.
