Notes from Port-Dock Captain Mtg 3-14-17
Currently the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) spends about 28 million dollars to help clean up Puget Sound. Under a proposed budget by President Trump, the funding would be reduced to about 2 million. KUOW reported this news on March 3rd and March 7th. ( http://kuow.org/post/trump-wants-cut-epa-funding-puget-sound-93-percent and http://kuow.org/post/trumps-epa-cuts-will-drain-cleanup-programs-puget-sound)
I urge you to contact the President, our Senators and Representative to request that funding for Puget Sound not be cut.
For the last two years the crew of S/V Bristol Blue (Ned Kohlhauff and Kristen Sierra) has headed up this activity. Due to several other commitments they will not be available to this year.
This event is sponsored by the Shilshole LiveAboard Association. If you live on a boat here a Shilshole Marina you are a member. The tour consists of volunteers that are willing to show their boats to the general public 12 noon to 4 pm on June 10 2017. Rounding up 3-4 other liveaboard boats to participate in the tour is the primary responsibility of the tour volunteer. Attending a couple of meetings with the Port of Seattle staff involved with putting on this event and getting the other tour volunteers to sign a release of harm document for each boat is also included.
If you are interesting in volunteering for this event you can call or email Kristen Sierra 206-890-5756 firstname.lastname@example.org
