Whale Trail 2010

Educating young and old about the plight of our cetaceans is extremely important and is one of the core missions of the American Cetacean Society.


During the school year, ACS Puget Sound regularly presents at science fairs. Students learn about Puget Sound's marine mammals through interactive exercises and hands on experiences.

Each May, ACS Puget Sound has an educational table at the Penn Cove Water Festival in Coupeville, Whidbey Island, on May 6.  This lovely intimate festival is immensely fun.  The festival not only highlights water conservation themes, but also Native American heritage through canoe races and crafts.

ACS Puget Sound has given educational presentations on the Bainbridge-Seattle ferry run from time to time at the invitation of the the Washington State Ferry system.

Occasionally ACS Puget Sound will partner with other organizations, such as the Seattle Aquarium, on presentations or events.

You're welcome to come and hang out with us. We are easy to connect with. Come to one of our meetings if you can or say hello via Facebook.

For Educators
