Welcome to Shelter Bay Communiversity!
Never stop learning…
…because life never stops teaching.
Shelter Bay Communiversity provides life-long learning opportunities available to residents of the Shelter Bay and Swinomish Tribal Communities.
Communiversity is a volunteer-managed program for the enjoyment of all Shelter Bay residents and Swinomish Tribal members. It provides a broadly-based curriculum of subjects presented in a fun and no-stress environment. Offerings are currently being made over Zoom until we can return to the Clubhouse.

Soul of the Skagit River
Tuesday November 16, 2023 – 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Christian Murillo hiked to the Skagit river’s glacial headwaters, to its delta and to the Salish sea beyond. Come and hear about the river’s origin, where it flows to and the impact it has on the environment, its fauna and the human beings who have depended on its waters for centuries. Climate change is influencing the river’s course but there is still time to reverse the damage and prevent further damage.
Instructor: Christian Murillo
