Paddling for a Purpose: Tribal Journey in the Salish Sea

The Coast Salish Nation and the USGS will embark on their second Tribal Journey together from July 21-August 3 to study and improve water resources in the Salish Sea. The media are invited to attend a celebration of blending traditional knowledge with USGS science as canoes land on Lummi Shores, WA on July 26. Water quality has deteriorated significantly across the Puget Sound and the Strait of Georgia in recent decades.

Last year, water quality probes towed behind canoes identified areas with unexpected water quality patterns, which may threaten many habitats and ecosystem functions.

This year, the project will study even more features and will collect information critical for identifying causes of water quality impacts and detecting trends during changes in land use and climate. Check out last year's maps, videos and photos by visiting the 2008 Coast Salish Water Quality Project Web site.
