The museum gives residents and visitors a chance to experience what life was like on Puget Sound in 1855.

Shannie was the winner of last month's contest, which showcased the Breazeale Interpretive Center at Padilla Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in the Bayview area of Skagit County. It is located near Bayview State Park on Bayview-Edison Road, approximately eight miles north of LaConner.

This site offers an interpretive center with a classroom, aquarium, nature exhibits and trails, all free to visit. It is also a research reserve that was created by the Washington Legislature and US Congress in 1980 to manage and protect critical intertidal and upland habitat. The site protects the largest continuous eelgrass bed in the lower 48 states, which provides a nursery for juvenile salmon, crab, herring and more; above water it provides critical habitat for waterfowl and marine birds.
