Listen to Dr. Deborah Giles, Science and Research Director of Wild Orca share whale tales of the Salish Sea and how LNT on the water is vitally important to our way of life in the San Juans. Learn about her particular twist on LNT practices to support Southern Resident killer whales.
The summer craze has crescendoed and is quickly transitioning into the calmer winter months. Islanders proclaim that the San Juans have been returned to them. So what are our obligations as we try to foster recovery of the land and animals that have been viewed so heavily in the summer months? How can we continue to protect our imperiled ecosystems with bounding visitation and a rising local population?
On Sacred Ground’s Leave No Trace Speaker Series touches on those topics as we cycle back to our 2014 voluntary commitment as a county to uphold Leave No Trace ethics. The LNT Speaker Series is funded by a Lodging Tax Advisory Committee grant from San Juan County.
