Feiro Marine Life Center is proud to work with numerous organizations and partners on the Olympic Peninsula and beyond to provide high-quality marine and watershed education and citizen science programs. Would you like to collaborate or share resources? Please contact us.
Selected partnerships include:
Under contract with the City, Feiro provides stormwater education for 4th and 5th grade students in Port Angeles, encourages consumer behavior change through education and public outreach, and builds, stores and makes available models to demonstrate how to reduce stormwater runoff into the sewer system, and why that’s a problem for our harbor and the marine life that call it home.
Feiro has had a longstanding relationship with the Sanctuary. Currently, we collaborate on numerous education programs, including North Olympic Watershed science for 4th and 5th graders in Port Angeles, Sequim and Crescent school districts, Ocean Science coastal field study for schools from Clallam Bay to Ocean Shores, Junior Oceanographer summer camp, Underwater Robotics afterschool club and more.
In addition, we cross-train volunteers with the Olympic Coast Discovery Center, located just next door at the Landing Mall.
Feiro works with the North Olympic Salmon Coalition on Peabody Creek in Port Angeles to remove invasive species, plant trees, stabilize trails and conduct trash clean-ups.
Feiro worked with the park to develop and host an exhibit, including a hands-on model and interpretive signage, about the famed Elwha River dam removal project, the largest dam removal in United States history. In addition, we partner on the North Olympic Watershed science program, studying the health of the Peabody Creek watershed with 5th grade students from Port Angeles, Sequim and Crescent school districts beginning from the Park visitor center at Mount Angeles Rd. and Park Ave.
Feiro’s underwater robotics program highlights the oceanography section of the Upward Bound summer program. Engaging high school aged youth in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) by building and flying underwater robots outfitted with cameras and sensors is one way to teach creativity, collaboration, resilience and problem solving; all critical components of the Upward Bound program as youth experience success in their pre-college years and prepare for college entrance.
