The 2022-2026 Action Agenda is our community’s shared plan to advance Puget Sound recovery over the next four years. With bold leadership and collaboration at all levels, coordinating our efforts, and acting urgently, Puget Sound can be a resilient ecosystem that supports healthy and diverse human communities and the habitats and species that we care about.
This episode of Making Waves Conversations features an interview with Laura Blackmore, executive director of the Puget Sound Partnership, and Dennis McLerran, chair of the Puget Sound Partnership’s Leadership Council. In the interview, Laura and Dennis discuss what they find most exciting about the new Action Agenda and how it will help guide funding for recovery.
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is a game-changing boost to Puget Sound. This money will be invested in salmon recovery, transportation infrastructure, roads and bridges, and in helping to make Puget Sound more climate resilient. Watch our video to learn more about the impacts.
Toxic chemicals in Puget Sound and the surrounding environment affect aquatic animals throughout the region. These chemicals can affect water quality and degrade habitat.
An often unacknowledged but surprising aspect of modern life is that toxic chemicals are pretty much everywhere. We encounter them in common consumer products and building materials. Toxic chemicals are also used in manufacturing processes throughout a wide range of industries.
