Visit Padilla Bay with your group

Out of an abundance of caution, we do not anticipate offering on-site education programs before summer 2021.  We are currently offering live online programs. 

Whether you are a classroom teacher, a scout leader, home school group, or community group, Padilla Bay educators look forward to providing a program to meet your needs. Our programs focus on estuary ecology, healthy watersheds, and how our actions and decisions affect the Salish Sea.

We want everyone to stay safe and healthy, and appreciate your understanding.


Scheduling considerations

  • We are currently scheduling the following virtual programs: plankton, aquarium tour, mudflat safari/eelgrass exploration, and beach seine. 
  • To schedule your group and get answers to your questions, please email Madi McKay at madison.mckay@ecy.wa.gov
