2002 Events

Much of 2002 outreach activities were focused on the Marine Matters Speakers Series - bringing writers, professors and conservationists to the Islands to share their experiences in marine biology, conservation and protected area planning.

Marine Matters booths were set-up at Hospital Days and the Tlell Fall Fair. For Oceans Day, family activities were hosted in numerous venues from Queen Charlotte City to Skidegate.
