Hands Across The Sand

Most of the time I write about books.  Occasionally I write about my other passions.  The ocean is our planet’s life blood.

I spend lots of time on the beaches of Puget Sound with school children, and with the public, talking about the animals that live in the intertidal zone, the fishes, birds and marine mammals that share the Sound with us and our impact on this incredibly important and incredibly rich ecosystem.

On June 26th, I will be taking part in an event called Hands Across The Sand.

Hands Across the Sand is a movement made of people of all walks of life and crosses political affiliations. This movement is not about politics; it is about protection of our coastal economies, oceans, marine wildlife, fishing industry and coastal military missions. Let us share our knowledge, energies and passion for protecting all of the above from the devastating effects of oil drilling.

If you live near a beach please join us.  If not, organize a solidarity event.  It is one thing you can do to help.

  1. I grew up practically on a beach, in Newfoundland. This post made me miss it so much. Good luck to you!

    May I use your picture of the Puget Sound beach for an educational powerpoint I am creating about the Nisqaully Indian People and the Puget Sound Indian War?
