The Wonders of the Salish Sea is an environmental adult education program in Vancouver, BC designed to awaken a sense of wonder and foster a deep connection in the Salish Sea ecosystem, the place we call home.
The Salish Sea is one of the largest inland seas in the world. Discover the wonders of this uniquely biodiverse, yet fragile, marine ecosystem with the guidance of local marine scientists, naturalists, and environmentalists.
The spring 2019 session of the Wonders of the Salish Sea is now finished. Watch this page for details about the 2020 session.
