Join us Tues. April 26th 5:30-7:30 pm at Shaw Centre for the Salish Sea 9811 Seaport Place, Sidney BC
Come experience the stories of the Salish Sea at this family friendly event!
Connecting the public with the Salish Sea Bioregion and its ecosystems through engagement, knowledge and awareness, the newly-named Shaw Centre for the Salish Sea offers an interactive and informative experience of science and culture to young and old – welcoming 80,000 visitors a year since opening in 2009 on the waterfront in Sidney, BC. It is the only year-round aquarium and cultural centre on Vancouver Island dedicated exclusively to the Salish Sea Bioregion.
The Centre is operated by the New Marine Centre Society and its volunteer Board of Directors. As a not-for-profit organization, the Centre relies on community support through admission fees, membership, partnerships and donations. The Centre’s key partnerships include the Town of Sidney, Shaw Communications, Sidney Pier Hotel & Spa, Marker Group, W̱SÁNEĆ First Nations, and the Government of Canada.
The goal of the Centre is to be a catalyst for building a healthy and sustainable environment by engaging people in stories about the science, culture, and traditions of the Salish Sea Bioregion so that we can protect and conserve it for seven generations and beyond.
Our mission is to create experiences that engage people to learn about, explore and conserve the Salish Sea Bioregion – its wildlife, waters, land, culture, and people. Our vision is for a healthy and sustainable Salish Sea Bioregion.
$10 admission includes appetizers and non-alcoholic beverage (family rate $30)
