Who We Are

Sound Water Stewards, a 501 (c)(3), is dedicated to the protection and preservation of the Salish Sea through education, stewardship, and community engagement. 

We empower individuals to become environmental stewards of our local marine and shoreline ecosystems!

Programs and Initiatives: 

30+ years of active involvement in environmental conservation and education to safeguarding the natural beauty and ecological integrity of the Salish Sea.

Education: We offer a variety of educational programs for pre k - to adult learners.

  • Barnacle Bonanza
  • Seaweed and Nature Journaling
  • Marine Debris
  • Invasive European Green Crab Molt Search
  • Volunteer Education and Training with collegiate level learning
  • Plus, Beach Tool Resources

Our goal is to raise awareness about the importance of marine and near shore ecosystems and inspire the community to become environmental stewards.

Stewardship Projects: Through hands on stewardship projects we work to restore and protect the marine environment and critical habitats along the 197 miles of Island County shoreline.  Our volunteers collect and recycle monofilament fishing line, participate in activities such as beach clean ups, native plant restoration, water quality monitoring, and marine wildlife conservation efforts.

Community Science:  Our team consists of passionate volunteers, educators, scientists, and community leaders actively engage in community science through collecting valuable data to support ongoing research and monitoring efforts in the Salish Sea.  By empowering community members to contribute to scientific research we enhance understanding of local ecosystems and inform conservation strategies.


Sound Water Stewards are trained volunteers working in and around Island County for a healthy, sustainable marine environment through education, science, and stewardship.
