New app launched for local adventurers

Posted

With summer’s song still beckoning to outdoor adventurers, The Northwest Straits Foundation has released its Passport to Marine Adventure travel game to provide an engaging way to explore the beautiful shores and bays of the Salish Sea.

It’s simple: Pick a site on the easy-to-use game app and chart a course for adventure. Along the journey, explorers can learn about marine wildlife, coastal habitats, and the Salish Sea.

The app is designed to help people get outside and see the breathtaking vistas and be inspired by this unique place to call home.

There are coastal exploration sites in the seven counties comprising the “Northwest Straits” region. These counties are Jefferson, Clallam, Island, San Juan, Skagit, Snohomish, and Whatcom.

The creators will be adding exploration sites monthly. At the launch, there are currently three sites marked in Port Townsend.

The foundation noted the sites make great day trips or can be combined for a longer getaway.

Visitors will also earn points to redeem at local businesses for discounts on food, merchandise, or hotel stays.

The foundation hopes that people will enjoy the journey, and learn about life, health, and stewardship of the Salish Sea.

The Northwest Straits region has opportunities for individuals to get involved through volunteering with Marine Resources Committees, the Northwest Straits Commission, and Northwest Straits Foundation.
