The School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences (SAFS) at the University of Washington is celebrating its 100-year anniversary in conjunction with a very special Bevan Series Symposium. Please join us for a two-and-a-half-day 100-year celebration that will occur alongside an insightful symposium centered on current issues related to aquatic biology and ecology, aquaculture, fisheries management, and ecosystems, plus the future of aquatic and fishery sciences.

Boots in the Mud Giving Campaign

In April 2019, the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences will celebrate its 100th year. To commemorate the Centennial, SAFS has created a new endowment called the Centennial Boots in the Mud Fund that will support experiences like these for students to get out in the field. To encourage support for this effort, the School will match all gifts up to $100,000. Visit our giving page to learn more. For questions, contact Daniel Webb at 206-221-4573 or
