SPRING IS ANNUAL MEETING TIME
Let’s face it: Annual meetings can be dull affairs involving pie charts and rubber chickens. We try to make ours a little different, with entertaining speakers, a tasty lunch menu, and great shorefront views of Friday Harbor. Please join us on May 13 from 11:30am to 1:30pm at the San Juan Island Yacht Club, just a short stroll from the Friday Harbor ferry landing, for the San Juan Preservation Trust’s 38th official family gathering.
This year’s featured speaker is former Preservation Trust board member Jonathan White. His talk will center on the research he did for his new book, Tides: The Science and Spirit of the Ocean. Over a ten-year period, Jonathan traveled the world to gain insights into extraordinary tidal phenomena, including the higher flood tides that now accompany rising sea levels. Griffin Bay Books will provide copies of Tides if you’d like to buy one for Jonathan to sign.
Over lunch, Executive Director Tim Seifert will brief you on recent accomplishments and current projects. After dessert and adjournment, Stewardship Manager Kathleen Foley will lead an optional “Bluebirds and Butterflies” field trip to American Camp (limited to 20 guests). We hope to see you on May 13!
