As a native of the area, growing up in Olympia. I remember going to the Olympia Oyster House on many occasions and eating a mountain of tiny Olympia Oysters. But it has been many years since those delicacies have passed over my taste buds. I’m curious what happened to our native Puget Sound Oyster. Did they grow up into the common larger oyster we now see in our waters around Gig Harbor? Dr. Behrens has all the answers and questions that will give us all insights into this mystery.


Coming up…You need to mark your calendar for the next two talks if you want to

hear about whales
  • July 19th: Come and literally “hear” the sounds from underwater of recordings and what we are learning about these sounds from the deep.
  • Aug. 16th: Hear what the marine scientists are learning about our local Puget Sound resident Orca Whales.
