Humanities Washington: George Halekas and "The Ecology of Sound"

This event is now full. Please contact the Front Desk at 253-858-6722 to inquire about our waiting list. 

Join Harbor History Museum for the first in its 2016 lecture series. Thanks to a generous grant from Humanities Washington, we are pleased to offer a series of four engaging and entertaining speakers this year. 

On June 3rd at 6:00pm, we will welcome George Halekas, a longtime conservationist with the State of Washington. George's training is in biology and wildlife, but another great passion of his is music. In his multimedia talk, "The Ecology of Sound," he tells a fascinating story linking natural history, music, and culture. Harbor WildWatch will provide an interactive touch tank for the Museum's Lobby Gallery for the evening of the event, and Gary Stroutsos, world flute player, will provide a short complimentary concert after the talk. 

This event is FREE. Doors open at 5:00pm for a reception with light snacks and a cash bar. To reserve your spot, contact Alphild Dick, Marketing & Events Coordinator, at or 253-858-6722 ext. 5. To learn more about Humanities Washington and their speaker series, visit their website at
