Letter: Foundation, Sea Resources are now one

<I>Kenny Osborne photo</I><BR>A newly completed fish passage structure on Chinook River replaces the old dam, including a new control valve and screen providing gravity flow of water for the hatchery, project managed and completed by CREST in collaboration with Sea Resources and other agencies and funding sources.

Sea Resources is alive and well. The Observer's "Crucial deadline for charities" article (Oct. 20) would have us and many of our neighbors on the non-profit obituary page.

To clarify, our former and separate Sea Resources Foundation, with its own non-profit status, was combined back in August 2004, with Sea Resources Inc. The long term investments and other funds remain intact and are overseen by our foundation committee as a part of Sea Resources, Inc. We continue to receive funds and strive to build the accounts to provide dividend and interest income to help sustain our mission and goals.

Presently, Sea Resources is active in three areas: 1) chum salmon supplementation; 2) watershed restoration; and 3) education and community outreach. Our classroom facility at the hatchery building (on Houchen Road in Chinook) is available for user groups. Regular meetings are held each second Thursday of the month.

Look for an upcoming Observer article about our recently completed and upcoming projects. Contact our manager on-site for tours, visits or classroom availability at 777-8229, or contact me directly at 783-2407.

KENNY OSBORNE, President

Sea Resources Inc.
