Many of today's island families are descended from U.S. Army soldiers. Join Park Historian Mike Vouri and learn more about how American Camp's "frontiersmen in blue" played a key role in pioneering Euro-American settlement on San Juan Island. Vouri also will discuss how agricultural operations changed the character of island landscapes, at American Camp.

San Juan Islands Museum of Art

A unique blend of art and science, these portraits open our eyes to the elegant natural design and remarkable diversity of hundreds of sea creatures living in the mysterious, beguiling, underwater world. Most of the underwater creatures photographed by Susan Middleton live in the Salish Sea around the San Juan Islands, and many are seen here for the first time. 

Middleton shares anecdotes and the process of creating these stunning images in her gallery talk. If you haven't seen the exhibition, do so! Absolutely breathtaking huge photographs of marine invertebrates that will delight audiences of all ages.
