When walking along Bainbridge Island beaches, do you ever wonder what's lurking just offshore and out of sight? Join us as marine biologist Dr. Gregory Jensen (University of Washington; author of "Crabs and Shrimps of the Pacific Coast") takes us on an underwater tour of the varied habitats around the island, and learn all about your colorful and fascinating fish and invertebrate neighbors!

"Tackling the Nature Deficit"

Nature Deficit Disorder is not a medical condition.  It is a social condition that is described as our lack of relationship to the environment due to the decrease in time spent outdoors.  Seen mostly in kids, it can have a profound effect on the future of our environment.  Luckily, the cure starts in our own backyards.  Join West Sound Wildlife for information on a few easy ways to start tackling the nature deficit, including an appearance by one of the Shelter's wildlife ambassadors.

The Brown Bag Lunch Series is presented by Bainbridge Island Land Trust and West Sound Wildlife Shelter. A suggested donation of $3 supports the missions of these organizations.
