Joseph K. Gaydos, co-author of The Salish Sea: Jewel of the Pacific Northwest, which combines a scientist’s inquiring mind, dramatic color photographs, and a lively narrative of compelling stories. This book describes the Salish Sea ~ one of the world’s largest inland seas containing 6,535 square miles of sea surface area and 4,642 miles of coastline. Fashioned by the violent volcanism of the Pacific Rim of Fire, plate tectonics, and the sculptural magic wrought by Ice Age glaciers, the Salish Sea is a unique ecosystem home to thousands of different species of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, and macro-invertebrates. Copies of this book will be available at the program.
