Tune into the Estuarium’s Facebook Live or join them through Zoom on Thursday, November 3rd at 6:30 PM to learn more about Brian Footen’s goal of mapping the Puget Sound nearshore. Brian co-founded and is now Executive Director of EarthViews Conservation Society. They work to advance the preservation and protection of lakes, rivers and waterways by documenting these critical endangered places using imagery and data. By creating the same immersive mapping that Google provides for our streets to our rivers and shorelines EarthViews Conservation Society then uses this information to advocate for waterway protection. To date Brian has mapped over 700 miles of Puget Sound Nearshore and the project is still moving forward in full force. Learn how you can help and join in the conversation to protect and restore Puget Sound’s nearshore.
