SKOOKUM is deeply dedicated to the preservation and protection of the park that is hosting us; the ocean that surrounds us; and the world in which we live and play. 

Our goal is to implement a strong and forward-thinking sustainability program during pre-production and throughout the festival. We’re doing this by carefully selecting responsible products and implementing aggressive recycling and waste diversion practices. We are proud to partner with Ocean Wise Life and the Stanley Park Ecology Society, along with challenging our sponsors and vendors to join us in this collective goal. But that’s not all. We also want to inspire you – as a responsible SKOOKUM festivalgoer – to join us in these sustainability efforts.
