STORIES FROM THE PEOPLE PROTECTING AND RECOVERING PUGET SOUND
Laura Blackmore, Puget Sound Partnership

Welcome to Making Waves, the Puget Sound Partnership’s online magazine!

We’re launching this issue of the magazine in advance of this year’s online Puget Sound Days on the Hill, a series of events, starting Friday, April 23, and hosted by the Partnership and the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission, that brings together a diverse coalition to advocate for federal investment in salmon recovery and Puget Sound restoration.
