More and more of us are living in cities! As our planet, state and region become more urban, wildlife, water and other natural resources are at risk. One of the biggest threats to Puget Sound is stormwater runoff. Stormwater runoff is the biggest source of pollution to Puget Sound, affecting aquatic life and public health. Here’s why our iconic rainfall is an issue, and what we can do to help protect Puget Sound.
A new $1.5 million grant from Boeing gives continuing support to our work to tackle the biggest threat to Puget Sound.
A project demonstrates the possibilities when developers are motivated to go above and beyond to address stormwater management.
When water infiltrates the ground, soil and plants can work together to absorb it, filtering pollutants and decreasing flooding.
We are hopeful for the future of the Puget Sound. The Puget Sound Partnership is providing impetus for us and many others to seek new solutions for the sound's health.
As the Puget Sound region becomes increasingly diverse, community-led nature-based projects are crucial to reflect equity of all residents.
Precision mapping tools boost environmental planning and resource management capacity for communities in Washington and around the world
Not only does green infrastructure protect, restore and rehabilitate natural habitats for fish and wildlife, but it also provides a suite of co-benefits to people.
To take on an issue so large as stormwater pollution in Puget Sound and reimagine a future with healthy, thriving communities, we need to be sure we are working smarter, not harder.
For green infrastructure projects to effectively uplift communities, they need to be driven by those communities.
