Beneath the Salish Sea: An Underwater Odyssey through Puget Sound – Saturday, Feb. 20, 2:00 PM at the Oak Harbor Library.
Although he films all over the globe, diver, BBC cinematographer, and marine biologist Florian Graner lives right here on Holmes Harbor, Whidbey Island. His film, Beneath the Salish Sea, opens with the amazing variety of life just off Beverly Beach, and then broadens its focus to include other areas of Puget Sound. Graner, who works with Service Education Adventure (SEA), wants everyone to know just how rich the ecosystems are right here in our home waters so they will be inspired to protect them. He will answer questions about filmmaking or marine biology after the show. To add to the fun, SEA's 65-foot teaching vessel Indigo will be at the Oak Harbor Marina and open for free tours both before (11-1:30) and after the film (4-5:30pm).
