PWSSC Facilities Project: Construction has begun!
"After years of planning, including a multiyear fundraising campaign, construction has begun on the Prince William Sound Science Center’s forthcoming 5-acre waterfront campus. Founded just after the Exxon Valdez oil spill in 1989, the nonprofit Science Center has focused heavily on climate, oceanography, fisheries, birds and oil spill research in the region, contributing more than $120 million to the state’s economy in the process."
