Salish Sea Expeditions hosts Patrons of Discovery Breakfast

Bainbridge Island’s Salish Sea Expeditions will host its annual Patrons of Discovery Breakfast at Seattle’s Bell Harbor International Conference Center on Wednesday, Oct. 30.

Tay Yoshitani, CEO of the Port of Seattle, will be the keynote speaker and King County Councilman Larry Phillips will act as master of ceremonies.

Salish Sea Expeditions is a nonprofit organization which provides opportunities for students in grades 5-12 to design and conduct scientific research on the waters of the Salish Sea and within their local watersheds.

Since its founding in 1994, the group has worked with more than 10,000 students from across the Puget Sound region and nationwide.

“I strongly believe in the student-directed, marine science pursued by Salish, including its work on wetlands preservation,” Yoshitani said. “Our shared efforts to protect Puget Sound depend on understanding and reducing the impacts we are having on the marine ecosystem. Salish is opening the eyes of our region’s next generation of environmental leaders.”
