What's Included


The Rosario Beach Marine Laboratory is located along the beach in Anacortes, Washington. This beautiful facility exists as an extension of the Walla Walla University’s undergraduate Marine Biology program. As well as hosting hands-on experiences for undergraduates it also hosts graduate students, independent research projects, retreat groups, and weddings. The Rosario Beach Marine Laboratory has requested Maranatha’s help to increase the accommodation capacity, functionality, and usability of the campus. Maranatha volunteers will assist in the construction of two cabins that will greatly benefit the facility. These 2 new cabins will be the 10th and 11th cabins that Maranatha teams have built at Rosario Beach since 1998.

Travel Information

If you are planning on flying to the project, the closest airport is SeaTac International Airport-Seattle/Tacoma (airport code SEA). The project is located about 2 1/2 hours north of Seattle, so upon arriving at the airport, you will need to take the Bellair Airporter Shuttle (1-5 North) to Anacortes.

You will make a reservation to the March Point Shell Station where you will be met by Maranatha representatives.

Please send your complete airline and shuttle itinerary to, so pick up arrangements can be made.
