Sound Living is a One Day "Communiversity", or university for everyone. It is designed to be a focused day of learning about the connections between the water, land and people of Snohomish County and vicinity. This event is is brought to you by WSU Snohomish County Extension Beach Watchers and made possible through the community mindedness and dedication of our guest presenters, exhibiting organizations and the generous contributions of the Puget Sound Partnership and many other individual friends and businesses.
Each year, a small group of community members receive 100 hours of training to become Beach Watchers. For each one of us, there are many more people who simply can't make that level of commitment at this time in their lives. Sound Living is our effort to enable everyone who cares about Puget Sound / the Salish Sea to learn more about this place. The goal of this gathering is to share what we have learned so that we can leave a lasting legacy of a healthy Puget Sound for future generations.
Immerse yourself in Puget Sound for a day! Explore the Connections you have with it.
Coffee and tea, and morning and afternoon snacks are provided as part of your registration fee.
An optional catered box lunch is available for an additional $8.00, and must be ordered at the time that you register. The box lunch contains either a veggie, roast beef or turkey sandwich (you choose), a cookie, fruit and soda or water.
You are, of course, welcome to bring your own brown-bag lunch. (but please help us by using reusable or compostable containers; and please pack out all your non-compostable garbage)
WSU Snohomish County Extension Beach Watchers are volunteers dedicated to protecting the Salish Sea through education, research and stewardship. Each year, a new class of community members take 100 hours of intensive classes on 'all things Puget Sound' and return 100 hours of volunteer time in two years. Collectively, just under 100 Snohomish County Beach Watchers give back more than 5,000 hours of volunteer service annually.
We work with our partners to contribute meaningfully to Salish Sea protection. Here are a few examples of our work
Sound Living is our largest educational/outreach activity! Our neighbors in Island County have been running Sound Waters, the model for this event, for over 15 years and fill a high school full of learners and teachers every February! We aspire to that! Sound Living is planned by Beach Watchers and their staff Coordinator, working as a team.
You can find out more about Beach Watchers at our website at http://beachwatchers.wsu.edu/snohomish.
If you find the course offerings at Sound Living interesting, consider joining Beach Watchers - classes begin each spring - and more information will become available on our website in the new year.
All classrooms and meetings spaces are wheelchair accessible. Room acoustics are very good. Persons requiring special accommodations while participating may contact WSU Snohomish County Extension. If accommodation is not requested in advance, we cannot guarantee the availability of accommodation on site.
We are unable to provide scholarships at this time.
Given the low registration fee, we do not offer student admission rates.
Sound Living is now requesting clock hour designation for teachers. If you are a teacher, please register now and indicate in the registration that you are interested in clock hours. We will have all necessary forms available at a special teacher registration table.
For more information, please contact the Sound Living Planning Team (email@example.com, (425) 357-6028).
If you are interested in a particular field, look for classes in that field. The program brochure has a 'topics at a glance' list on page 9.
We have 19 new classes this year. The Program Chair works hard to ensure that we have a mix of new and old topics - we hope you enjoy them.
We have had feedback from previous Sound Living that a class description did not sufficiently indicate where some previous knowledge was required.
So classes that presume a prior class, or equivalent experience are marked as Intermediate.
Registration closed October 14th 11pm
While registration is open you can:
For each class session we ask that you rank the classes that you are interested in taking this year.
Put the class (or classes) that you would really like to take into Rank.1 Most people will get one of their Rank.1 classes. But some years we have runaway class favorites, or a highly requested class must be cancelled at the last moment. To help us assign people to classes in these situations, please also tell us a second set of classes that you would be interested in taking if -all- of your more highly ranked classes are already full.
Please note: classes within a Rank are assumed to be of identical preference. There is no significance to the fact that they are shown in numeric order.
How do I tell you my preferences??
