South Whidbey High School, Langley —
Sound Waters is a one day university for all – on all things Puget Sound. With more than 60 classes on a wide range of topics relating to the Puget Sound region, there’s something for every interest. Be sure to register early because some classes fill up quickly.
Keynote speaker Dr. Florian Graner is a world-renowned research diver and marine cinematographer who has lived on Whidbey Island since 2006. While he holds a PhD in marine biology, Florian’s main focus and profession is the production of natural history documentaries and educational and outreach videos. He has dived and filmed extensively in the Salish Sea, as well as in remote regions of the planet.
SWU 2018 participants will be treated to portions of Florian’s recent film “Beneath the Salish Sea.” He will share his perspectives on how the knowledge of who and what shares our environment is crucial to developing our “sense of place” and enhancing our interest to learn and better understand where we live, how we impact the environment around us and how we can mitigate our impact and become true stewards.
Join us as we dive into our environment with Dr. Graner and explore our own potential to restore damaged habitats and bring back the richness and abundance of wildlife which once gifted the Salish Sea. Learn more about Florian and his work at his website: sealife-productions.com
