Our Annual Meeting & Dinner to be unusually festive!

We will again host our famous board created pot luck dinner, host wines & beers and guest speaker on Saturday, October 4th from 3:30pm – 7:30pm here at the Reserve.  If you would like to attend, please telephone Kay Reinhardt at 360-757-3234 or write Kay an email at:  foundation@padillabay.gov.  Tickets are $20.  This is a veritable locally sourced feast and is a lively, convivial meeting.  We’d love to have you there!

We will have William Dietrich, author here as guest speaker, and Bill will also happily autograph his new book in collaboration with Mountaineers Books titled “North Cascades – Finding Beauty & Renewal in the Wild Nearby”  This is a debut event for this book and the sales support costs of publishing but also a generous amount stays with the Padilla Bay Foundation as a fund raiser.

We also have a beautiful hand made estuary themed quilt on offer displayed at the event, with tickets only $5.  You need not be present to win.  Drawing is December 9th.  We will ship to your destination.  See below in this message for the link to view the front & back of this special, beautiful quilt and to see it’s dimensions.

The board has a third tier to its fund raising efforts currently.  We have been fund raising as a board with contributions from board members and are asking members to help us match that money raised.  We are dedicating a brass critter of a crab to our recently retired long time Research Coordinator, Doug Bulthuis.  These funds help us with support of your national estuarine research reserve right here at Padilla Bay.
