The Whale Museum staff will honor the lives and commemorate the deaths of passed Southern resident orcas at 3 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 1. Share memories of departed whales who are gone but never forgotten. The Whale Museum helps keep the legacies of these whales alive through its “Storykeeper Series” – limited commemorative packets available in the museum store, designed to remember those orcas who have gone before.

Staff is asking for help as they prepare to honor the departed members of the Southern resident community. If you have photos of past whales or special stories you would like to share, the staff welcomes them. For more information, contact 360 378-4710 ext. 30. A special thank you to Islanders Insurance for their generous sponsorship of this event.

The Nov. 1 event is free and open to the public. The Whale Museum is located in Friday Harbor at 62 First St. For more information, visit www.whalemuseum.org.
