The Whale Museum is pleased to welcome Shona Aitken, Wolf Hollow’s Education Curator, back as part of a free, collaborative 2018 Spring and Summer Lecture Series at 7:00 pm at The Whale Museum on the following dates:

This exciting lecture series focuses on living in harmony with wildlife. Topics will explore local wildlife species and how human impacts which may harm these wildlife and their habitats can be reduced. These impacts can include everything from removing nests/nesting material when gardening to vehicle strikes.
Through becoming more aware of the impacts of our actions, visitors and residents of San Juan Island can learn to be better stewards to the wildlife that share their home with us. The first lecture will focus on the different kinds of wildlife found here on the island and human/wildlife issues that might arise.
