PCSGA attends an abundance of outreach events through out the year. Below are a few updates that brought summer to an end and rolled in the Pacific Northwest rainy fall.

“This effort, on March 17th, marked the 23rd clean-up demonstrating shellfish grower’s environmental advocacy and action to remove marine debris from South Puget Sound. With 21 boats on the water and 106 volunteers, approximately 120 miles of bays, inlets, and islands were scoured for rubbish.”
PCSGA extends a huge thank you to those who participated on October 21 at the 22nd Beach Clean Up, Fall 2015. It was great to see the comradery and group effort to clean our south sound beaches! This event truly wouldn’t be possible without the help of all volunteers.
Thank you to all the volunteers and those who came out to support Skookum Rotary and PCSGA!
