Place Matters

Deeper connections

with place and people.

These Place Matters social gatherings are an opportunity for Community Engagement Fellows to connect with each other and members of the broader community who care about place-based learning. There is no set program, just a prompting question about the Salish Sea Region to spur conversation.

Hors d'oeuvres and non-alcoholic refreshments provided. Participants are welcome to purchase additional food and beverages.

In the meantime, consider connecting with others through our virtual Learning Together Today prompts. 

Our programming takes place on the ancestral homelands of the Coast Salish Peoples, who have lived in the Salish Sea basin, throughout the San Juan Islands and the North Cascades watershed, from time immemorial. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, particularly the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
