New Go Blue Exhibits

We have exciting news to share with you! On Tuesday, May 5th, the Port Townsend Marine Science Center is joining more than 8,000 nonprofits for the GiveBIG fundraising event through the Seattle Foundation to raise funds that will support the collective action necessary in addressing the problems affecting our oceans today, including climate change!

In anticipation of this BIG event, we will be sharing updates on some of our climate change efforts: our new Gone Green? Go Blue! exhibits, our citizen science project concerning jellyfish, and a pilot program with our local high school focusing on ocean acidification.

The Port Townsend Marine Science Center’s Gone Green? Go Blue! Support Your Local Ocean initiative builds on what we already do as individuals to live green and takes it to the next level — inspiring collective action to improve ocean health — starting locally with the Salish Sea.

Brand new exterior exhibits at the Port Townsend Marine Science Center show how the community can take ‘living green’ to the next level for local ocean health! Check out a video our Americorps volunteers made while installing part of the new exhibit:

The exhibits feature some of the wonderful things about the Salish Sea, the issues affecting the sea, and inspiration for all of us to take action towards a healthy future for the Salish Sea.


Go Blue! is an environmental initiative led by the Port Townsend Marine Science Center to raise awareness and inspire collective action to improve ocean health — starting here at home with the Salish Sea.

Our exhibits are open Friday-Sunday, 12-5 pm.

Visit us to discover life in the Salish Sea and what we as a community can do to ensure its health for generations to come. Through collective solutions, we can inspire other communities to Go Blue!
