Lecture: Aquatic Invasive Species in the Salish Sea [Poulsbo]

Watching our Waters for Unwelcome Wanderers: Aquatic Invasive Species in the Salish Sea
[Part of the Western summer lecture series at the Poulsbo SEA Discovery Center.]
When: “Wednesday, August 14 at 6 p.m.
     “As we, our stuff and our economy shuffle around the planet, animals and plants move or are moved with us. Some cause harm to the ecology, economy or human health in our region. Among them, the invasive land plants, birds and beasts are more familiar to us, while species introduced into our waters, are often far less obvious, just as harmful and nearly impossible to eradicate. We’ll explore aquatic invasive species that threaten or already live in our area and how institutions, individuals and you can help prevent introductions and protect our water resources.


“Speaker: Jeff Adams
Jeff is a marine ecologist with Washington Sea Grant, a department in the UW College of the Environment. Jeff supports beach naturalist, watershed stewardship and invasive species programs and associated community science opportunities on the Kitsap Peninsula, the Salish Sea and beyond. He is passionate about sharing the wonders of watery worlds with all who will listen and enjoys island life with his extraordinary wife and two budding beach naturalists.
