This March there are a number of events happening around here, organized by the San Juans Alliance to recognize the 25th anniversary of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill in Alaska’s Prince William Sound:

  • Attend a lecture – to learn about what would happen to our islands in the event of a major oil spill.
  • Watch a movie – Black Wave: The Legacy of the Exxon Valdez – Screenings are happening on Orcas, Lopez and San Juan Islands
  • Look for drift cards – On March 24th, the anniversary day of the Exxon Valdez, a drift card drop will simulate what would happen here.
