Thank you so much for your support of WWU's Marine Science Scholars Program!!! We wanted to be sure to invite you to this year's Open House, happening on Saturday September 16th from 11-3pm. There will be fun info booths for all ages, and a Keynote speaker from Associate Professor Benjamin Miner titled: Sea star wasting disease and the demise of sea stars in the Salish Sea. 

This is going to be an exciting and fun opportunity to get to learn more about the Marine Science Scholars you helped support, as well as all the wonderful things happening at the Shannon Point Marine Center!
