In Anacortes, the Procession of the Species came to life in 2022. As an affiliate of the Anacortes Arts Foundation, the organization operates with 501(C)3 status, meaning donations are tax-deductible.


The Procession of the Species board of directors is Andy Stewart, Beck Pittman, Laurie Sherman, Ora Peterson, Sally Peyou, and Zachary Wight. They represent a cross section of the community and bring a variety of skills and experiences to their roles. Together, these board members have built a multi-year plan to create a vibrant annual event.
