Since its inception, the nonprofit Sound Experience has been educating youth and adults throughout Puget Sound with environmental education and leadership programs aboard the historic schooner Adventuress. In over 20 years, more than 50,000 (mostly youth) have sailed aboard, exploring the ecology and history of Puget Sound. In 1989, Adventuress was named a National Historic Landmark. Today, more than 3,000 people a year sail aboard, experiencing first-hand Puget Sound's majesty and vulnerability, and how their daily actions will make a difference in the health of the region's waterways for generations to come.
