Puget Sound Ecosystem

You are invited to participate in a series of topic forums to help inform the development of the Action Agenda. The forums will help synthesize the region’s knowledge on key aspects of the Puget Sound ecosystem. All information gathered during these forums and from comments and input from interested parties will be synthesized and discussed at a broad, ecosystem-wide forum May 28.

During these all-day work sessions, science and policy experts will:

§ Review Sound-wide status and threats analyses;

§ Discuss the technical understanding of the problem; and

§ Identify policy strategies needed to help achieve a healthy Puget Sound.

Each of the following topic forums will be held from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.:

Species/Biodiversity – May 1

TOC Conference Center, 5799 – 23rd Drive W., Everett

Water Quantity – May 5

Edmonds Conference Center, 201 Fourth Ave. N., Edmonds

Synthesis Forum – May 28th

Location TBD

Detailed materials developed for each topic forum will be posted on the Partnership’s Web site on or before April 14.

Attendees should be able to share their scientific and policy expertise on each of the topic areas. The meetings are open to the public. If you cannot attend a forum but would like to participate, you can submit comments electronically by May 6.
