Those of us lucky enough to live in the Pacific Northwest usually love salmon. And not just to eat!! If you love salmon like we do, head down to Boundary Bay Brewery (starting June 19th) for Salmon at the Bay, a silent art auction to benefit the Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association (NSEA).
The Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association(NSEA) is a community–based nonprofit organization dedicated to restoring sustainable wild salmon runs in Whatcom County since 1990. They train and organize hundreds of volunteers every year and use education and outreach to engage the community in salmon recovery. NSEA has well-established school and outreach programs and works on long-term projects to keep working at the job of salmon recovery.
But, like any nonprofit, NSEA has to rely on fundraising to continue their efforts, and this Salmon at the Bay silent auction is a great way to do it! Each piece of art has been donated by a local artist expressing their passion for salmon, and as a whole, the artwork celebrates the history of Whatcom County salmon and our community’s efforts to ensure their sustainable future. Proceeds from this silent auction benefit the salmon education and habitat restoration programs of Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association. The art show will be displayed at Boundary Bay until August 6th and all items will be available for bidding through Online Silent Auction.
The other way to help NSEA raise money is to attend the art exhibit opening and salmon BBQ lunch on June 19th in the Boundary Bay beer garden. Join us to celebrate our personal, cultural, historical, economic, and environmental connection to salmon. This year’s theme is Earth, Water, Salmon – the elements of our stream ecosystems. Enjoy music from The Warren Street Session and check out the art hanging on the walls inside Boundary Bay. All event and art auction proceeds benefit NSEA programs to restore sustainable wild salmon runs in Whatcom County. Tickets for both events and music are available at the door or at the NSEA office. Call 715-0283 or email email@example.com to purchase tickets in advance or for more information.
