Sun Mountain Lodge 1

Dear Colleagues:

It’s time for WPPA’s Fall Environmental Seminar.  As you know, these events provide participants with a relaxed venue to learn about environmental issues and reconnect with friends in the port community.  In addition to presentations by experts, this year’s agenda is full of the peer-to-peer interactions that have time and again proven so valuable.

This year’s seminar will be held at Sun Mountain Lodge in the beautiful Methow Valley.  We begin the morning of Thursday, September 29 and will conclude by noon on Friday.

Thank you and we hope to see you at Sun Mountain!
