Marine center in bad straits -- News Roundup
The Poulsbo Marine Science Center is launching a major fund and membership drive, under the theme We Let Our Friends In For Free, to run through this summer.
For its marine environmental programs to continue, the center needs to expand its membership base, especially in light of financial shortfalls experienced by the educational, nonprofit institution.
Anyone joining at the $45 level receives 18 months of free admission to the center and many of its programs, for the entire family, as well as a CD-ROM about local marine life.
Those joining at the $60 level also receive a copy of the new Seattle Aquarium DVD, Life on the Edge.
Our society members are our lifeblood, said one trustee. With a substantial membership base were able to continue our educational programs. This is a time of crisis in Puget Sound and nearby waters; only public education will keep them healthy, and education is our business.
The Poulsbo Marine Science Center is located on Front Street in Poulsbo.
