2004 Events

In 2004, Marine Matters booths and activities to promote awareness and stewardship of the ocean around us have once again made appearances throughout community events. This year, the summer morning low tides were particularly low and the intertidal life was exceptional.

Community Events

Hospital Days • Queen Charlotte Community Hall

Marine Matters initiated the Stream to Sea of Dreams Community Project based on the Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) Stream of Dreams Program. Hosted by the DFO and World Wildlife Fund Canada, the purpose is to bring awareness about marine conservation issues to Islanders and visitors through a community art project where participants of all ages will express their vision for the oceans' future through the painting of plywood sea creatures. Marine Matters will keep these sea creatures and kelp for creation of a public art piece on the chain link fence of the Queen Charlotte Community Hall. Through this and other public and school events over the year, the art piece will expand in Queen Charlotte and to other communities. Much appreciation to the shop instructor, Dave Greenough, and students at Queen Charlotte High School for all the hard work cutting out and priming the sea creatures!

Tlell Fall Fair • Tlell Fairgrounds

Marine Matters hosted a booth at the Tlell Fall Fair for the 4th consecutive year. As always, we had a temporary touch tank to bring ocean creatures to the Islanders and visitors. There were fun activities, games, information and even Stream to Sea of Dreams sea life to paint!
