  • ORCA Tour - EvCC's Ocean Research College Academy is now located in a state of the art facility on the Everett Waterfront at the Port of Everett’s Waterfront Center. With a generous grant from the National Science Foundation, ORCA was able to build an oceanographic research lab for students. Complete with a 120 gallon seawater aquarium, fume hood, and fully equipped student islands, the lab was designed for collaborative and independent research. Executive Director Ardi Kveven has generously offered tours to our Conference attendees!
