We had a great Halloween Haunted History/Toxic Terrors Tour in 2011!
We were super lucky to have great personalitiesÂ joinÂ us this year. Thank you, Salvador Dali, Che Guevara, Neo and others!
Attendees also witnessed firsthand what can happen to you if you are exposed to hazardous toxic chemicals (you becomeÂ a toxic zombie!). Thank you, everybody, for being such great friends, partners and supporters! Check out our picturesÂ here!In 2011, thanks to the generosity ofÂ National Wildlife FederationÂ andÂ Alki Kayak Tours, we were able to provide free, or pay-what-you-can, tours to people inÂ the communityÂ who wouldnâ€™t have been able to participate otherwise. This year nearly 80 participants saw the River up close during the 6 evening kayak tours, viewed habitat restoration areas, ongoing Superfund cleanup sites, riverfront neighborhoods, and wildlife!Check out the amazing photographs taken by our great friend and supporter, Robyn Turner, on our August 3, 2011 Summer Community Kayak TourÂ here.Chartered tours included information on water quality monitoring and how to report suspicious discharges to the Dept of Ecology and Puget Soundkeeper Alliance; participants helped collect water samples from the South Park waterfront and discharging stormdrains for theÂ Sound CitizenÂ program.
Also of note:Â In his free time, Captain Ed of Kitsap Harbor Tours and his wife runÂ Isla Holbox Spay-Neuter program, which provides free basic animal care including animal sterilization to communities in Mexico. Way to go, Ed!
