League of Women Voters in April: “Island Crossroads: Vessel Traffic, Oils Spills and You,”

The League of Women Voters April meeting will be at the San Juan Island Library Conference room on Monday, April 14, noon to 2 p.m.

The program, “Island Crossroads: Vessel Traffic, Oils Spills and You,” will feature Shaun Hubbard and Lovel Pratt as speakers.

They will talk about the new and expanding fossil fuel terminal and refinery projects in the Salish Sea. If completed, the terminals will lead to a significant increase in commercial vessel traffic in our waters, threatening marine mammals, water fowl, our economy and our pristine shores.

The meeting is open to the public and islanders are encouraged to come and learn what the projects are, what the risks are, and what impact we can try to make on the process as these plans move forward.
