1. Sponsoring a tank locally (OMSI?) and/or at the Hatfield - this seems like a nice combination of educational opportunity and way to raise awareness of the group.
I work at the Clackamas Aquatic Park and think that it would be a wonderful space to sponsor a tank. We have a beach themed room that I think would be the perfect spot. I am well versed in tank maintenance, and am on sight here 6 days a week. I may not be the best person to lead a educational program, but I am more then willing to step up in any way that I am able to help. If this is something that the group would be interested in I am more then happy to speak with management about their openness to this idea. I think they would be pleased with the idea as long as it was at no cost to them, and I maintenance the tank off the clock which I'm more then happy to do. This is located in a part of the facility that non paying parties are able to view. So if members want to come and look at the tank there would be no admission required.
