8th Annual Beach Interpretation at Bowen Island a blast!

On Saturday June 14, 2014 MLSS held our 8th annual Beach Interpretation Program (BIP) at the Mount Gardner public dock on Bowen Island.  It was a fun-filled day full of a fantastic diversity of marine life (including 3 octopus!) and about 150 enthusiastic attendees coming out to learn about the marine life at their local beaches.  Thank you to the RBC Blue Water Project for their previous grant money to support this program and to all of our wonderful volunteers who helped out both underwater and onshore!

MLSS is always looking for partners for continued support of this educational program. All of our programs are run entirely by volunteers. To support our Beach Interpretations and other MLSS programs please donate! A huge thank you to all of our incredible volunteers this year.

The Marine Life Sanctuaries Society uses our Beach Interpretation Program to engage local communities and increase awareness of our local marine environments. By connecting people directly with our local marine ecosystems, we hope that citizens will be stewards of marine life in BC. We encourage people to join  us in our effort to educate and work towards creating marine sanctuaries throughout all of British Columbia.

Don’t miss out on this great program, stay tuned to our events page for information on a BIP near you!
