Anchor Dennis Bounds of Seattle's KING 5 television said, "This most recent visit was first reported
by a volunteer at the Port Townsend Marine [Science] Center who was
letting a visiting class of third graders listen to some hydrophones
when they suddenly heard dozens of approaching
orcas." Click image to go to KING 5 video.

Centrum and the Port Townsend Marine Science Center are presenting Water World  – a workshop in art and marine science for 5th and 6th graders from throughout Washington state in April.

…and if you are fascinated by orcas and are a student age 10-12, there is no better place to learn about them than here at Fort Worden. We'll be presenting WHALE CAMP in August, with special emphasis on orcas and gray whales.

Space is still available in both workshops. For more information, contact Martha Worthley at 360-385-3102 or email her at
