March Ecosystem Services Photo Contest Winner

Congratulations to Emily Garlich of Kamilche Sea Farms, winner for the March Ecosystem Services Photo Contest and $100.

“The blue mussels growing on longlines of our mussel farm are busy feeding. White sea anemones are growing with them. The mussels are sucking in sea water filtering out phytoplankton helping to keep phytoplankton blooms in check. You can see their mantles, the tissue just inside the shell, making a siphon to channel the water over the gills toward the mouth for feeding.”

Ebb and Flow Film Screening & Reception, March 26th 2-5pm

‘Ebb and Flow’: A Japanese-American family, an oyster, and how they influenced Pacific NW history

Ebb and Flow follows Jerry (Eiichi) Yamashita, as he recounts his
family history from the despair of the Japanese internment camps,
to his father’s pioneering efforts in the 1930’s to save the Pacific
Northwest shellfish industry from total collapse.

With the help of rare archival footage, the film begins with his
father’s decision to immigrate to America in 1900, and spans three generations of entrepreneurial spirit and triumph, while facing unending struggle and uncertainty.

Screening at South Puget Sound Community College, 2011 Mottman Rd SW, Olympia, Washington 98512
