KEEP / ECO Net is a great place to find support, ideas, collaboration and funding for joint projects and outreach in environmental education. The opportunities are only limited by the reach of our imagination!
Here are some projects for which members have collaborated...we'd love to add yours to the list!
Movies by Still Hope Productions:
Member John Williams of Still Hope Productions has been making videos about the environment for many years, with a specialty in underwater videography and photography.

Here are his latest movies ~ contact him if you're interested in making your own movie!
Salmon Tours with Washington State University Extension and Kitsap County Public Works
Many KEEP / ECO Net members collaborate each fall to welcome the salmon home with Salmon Tours in Silverdale. In 2015 about 500 people joined in the event. Through hands on activities and walking tours with local salmon experts and docent volunteers, participants learn all about salmon - their habitat, life cycle, different species, challenges they're facing and fun facts.

Each year several Kitsap County agencies put on the Kitsap Water Festival at the Kitsap Fairgrounds. Over 1000 fourth grade students from the region to learn everything from A to Z about local waters.
