Naturalist Training Program

Join the San Juan Island Naturalist Program! We’re looking for volunteers who are confident in sharing their knowledge about whales, the Salish Sea, and being Westside stewards.

Help people watch, enjoy, and learn about whales from stations at the Westside Preserve, just south of Lime Kiln Point State Park.
