Project Title & Description
Urban Waters Project
This Cooperative Agreement provides funding to Port Townsend Marine Science Society (PTMSS) to create a new, permanent, educational and interactive exhibit at the Port Townsend Marine Science Center(PTMSC) with the theme "Toxics in the Marine Environment". Volunteers will assist with designing the exhibit by participating in focus groups. Additionally, volunteers will collect 25 roof run-off samples from the Port Townsend and Seattle area and sent to a lab to be analyzed for approximately 100 toxic compounds; and volunteers will get the opportunity to collect tissue samples from deceased seals that will be analyzed for toxic chemicals and phthalates.
