The San Juan Islands are such a treasure, and Skagit Valley College staff are the perfect partners in making a visit to this area a memorable experience. Makes you want to return again and again.

Though the weather was abominable, the speakers who presented certainly know the history and culture of their islands. The information I picked up from this week rounded out my general knowledge of the state of Washington. The participants I met on this trip helped make this adventure even more enjoyable. Thank you to Road Scholar for offering wonderful programs such as this one.

This was an excellent program. We learned a lot about island life and had a great time in the process. We highly recommend this program.
