San Juan Islands, WA, USA
Science for Stewardship--research cooperative working with schools and community volunteers to research, monitor, and steward the San Juan archipelago. Our school and summer programs focus on engaging young people (particularly young women) in using chemistry, engineering, biology, and technology skills to solve pollution and other local environmental issues.
We hold regular annual events to celebrate and inform the community on place-based community science projects, SalmonAtion and Day for the Bay on Lopez Island, and Celebrate Indian Island and the Tides of March (on March 15th) on Orcas Island. The Tides of March is a youth focused event which includes science inspired, youth driven art performances. We also hold classes that provide training to community members (primarily women) in local ecology, chemistry, ornithology, botany, plankton ID, ichthyology, and entomology.
