Come Explore Puget Sound Plankton

Extend your summer fun and come see “What’s Blooming in Budd”!

Bring the family for a fun, FREE, informative exploration to learn about the plankton of Puget Sound! Stream Team has partnered with Pacific Shellfish Institute to collect water quality and plankton samples in Budd Inlet. Participants assist in collecting water samples and measuring temperature, salinity and other water quality parameters. Samples are then viewed under a field microscope to identify algae and plankton. All ages welcome, no registration required.
