The "Orion"


At this Wednesday's meeting,  Kevin Campion, Captain, and Lindsay Walker, Education Director and Chief Mate, of the sailing vessel Orion, talked about the boat, the Deep Green Wilderness organization, and the many youth and adult education programs available aboard the Orion (a 64 foot wooden yawl built in 1934).  Deep Green Wilderness offers a variety of education programs throughout the year, mostly targeted at junior and high school aged youth.  Each program is designed to highlight different aspects of the Salish Sea and includes learning opportunities in marine science, environmental issues and policies, and providing a hands-on sailing experience.
