Dates of Instruction: 7/20/17 – 8/19/17
Application Deadline: 2/15/17
Standing Together: Tribal Canoe Journey Field Study at Cape Mudge and Campbell River, British Columbia is a response to the official invitation from the We Wai Kai and We Wai Kum Nations of British Columbia, presented at the Paddle to Nisqually this year at the culmination of the annual Tribal Canoe Journey on August 6, 2016, we quote the invitation here, so that the intention of our host will be clear:
The coastal waters of British Columbia have sustained our peoples since time immemorial, providing access to precious resources and connecting our communities to one another.
SAFS alum Donna Hauser and SAFS professor Kristin Laidre are featured in UW Today:
‘The annual migration of some beluga whales in Alaska is altered by sea ice changes in the Arctic, while other belugas do not appear to be affected.
A new study led by the University of Washington finds that as Arctic sea ice takes longer to freeze up each fall due to climate change, one population of belugas mirrors that timing and delays its migration south by up to one month.
We know it’s the first week of Winter Quarter, but why not plan your Spring Break plans now! Apply to Pipeline’s amazing FREE domestic study abroad to rural and tribal parts of Washington State for spring break. Applications to Literacy Arts Alternative Spring Break are open until January 13th.
The Pipeline Project recruits a group of UW undergraduates to volunteer on a literacy arts project with elementary, middle or high school kids in rural Washington during spring break.
The Dream Project provides an opportunity for UW students to support low-income and first-generation high school students in South King County on applying to college and other post-secondary planning.
Mentor high school seniors on applying to colleges, filing the FAFSA/WASFA to access financial aid, applying to scholarships, and more.
