On Wednesday the 29th of October, 2014 Lakeshore Scuba and Great Lakes Dive Locker will be presenting a seminar on Project AWARE. The Project AWARE Foundation is a growing movement of scuba divers protecting the ocean planet. One dive at a time. The seminar is designed to familiarize divers and non-divers with the plight of worldwide aquatic ecosystems. During the seminar, participants will learn more about the role Project AWARE plays in protecting worldwide aquatic ecosystems. They will also learn about the importance of, and the interdependent nature of, worldwide aquatic ecosystems. We will focus on fisheries concerns, costal zone management, marine pollution, and what we can do to help conserve worldwide aquatic ecosystems.
The seminar begins at 6:30 pm at Lakeshore Scuba in Grand Haven and runs approximately 3 hours. The seminar is free to attend, but advance registration is required. You can register by calling Lakeshore Scuba at 616-847-4444 or Great Lakes Dive Locker at 616-531-9440; stopping by either of the stores and adding your name to the sign-up; or by using our new online registration form: Lakeshore Scuba Seminar Registration Form.

Working toward your Master Scuba Diver rating?
By attending the seminar and completing the course knowledge reviews, participants may earn the Project AWARE Specialty certification. This seminar/class is one of the many scuba diving classes and certifications that you can complete to earn the highest non-professional scuba diving rating offered, Master Scuba Diver.
While the seminar is free, the certification requires a processing fee. The price to process the certification card through PADI is $35.00.
Bring a non-diving friend!
You don’t need to be a certified diver to attend the seminar, or earn the Project AWARE certification. This is a great opportunity to share your passion for diving with a friend or family member and help educate them about the planet at the same time.
