Wed. August 19th, 2020 7pm: WEBINAR - Camano Island’s Sound Habitats: In our Backyards and Beyond by Jerilyn Ritzman

The dynamic interactions between land and sea help create Camano Island’s rich natural ecosystem. On an island where no one lives more than a mile or two from the shore, the land and water-use decisions made by individuals can either jeopardize or safeguard the critical habitats for salmon, orcas, birds, vegetation, and other species. Join Jerilyn Ritzman, Shore Stewards Coordinator for WSU Extension Island County, as she highlights the nearshore habitats you’re also helping protect when you take good care of your property.

Jerilyn Ritzman is the Shore Stewards Coordinator for WSU Extension Island County. Growing up on Camano Island gave Jerilyn a strong appreciation for our beautiful natural environments and inspired her to pursue degrees in geology and, subsequently, marine and environmental affairs at the University of Washington. Her work focused on how scientific findings can be translated into effective education and policy. Now, along with managing the Shore Stewards program, Jerilyn also helps manage two other environmental education programs offered by WSU Extension on Camano Island: Waste Wise and Master Gardener.
