The Whale Museum honors the lives and commemorates the deaths of several Southern Resident orcas who are gone but certainly not forgotten. The Whale Museum helps keep the legacies of these whales alive through their ‘Storykeeper Series’ and limited commemorative packets available in the Museum store, designed to remember those orcas who have gone before. In the Mexican Day of the Dead tradition refreshments will be provided; 4:00 – 5:00 pm.
This event is free and open to the public, although donations are appreciated. For more information please contact Education Curator Cindy Hansen at 360 378-4710 ext. 23 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Whale Museum is located in Friday Harbor at 62 First St. N. Founded in 1976, The Whale Museum’s mission is to promote stewardship of whales and the Salish Sea ecosystem through education and research. In addition to providing exhibits, the Museum also provides programs including the Marine Naturalist Training, Orca Adoption Program, Soundwatch Boater Education, San Juan County Marine Mammal Stranding Network, and the Whale Hotline.
