Now through April 22: Be a part of the Big Thing for Puget Sound!
Are you a part of the Big Picture? This Earth Day, the King County Education and Outreach Network (including Sustainable Seattle!) invite you to be part of the Big Thing - an easy way for us all to show why we love and care for this region. We all connect to Puget Sound in different ways - from a good cup of local coffee to playing with our pets at the beach to keeping our trees and plants healthy. We want to see how you connect! Between now and Earth Day, April 22, submit photos (as many as you want!) to Instagram with the #mypuget. Your photos will join others in building a photo mosaic of an iconic Puget Sound animal (identity to be revealed on Earth Day!). Don't have Instagram or want to keep your photo stream private? Email
and we will upload it for you!
Check out the website and Facebook page to see the picture building!
This project is funded by the Puget Sound Partnership.
April 21 - Moving Green Infrastructure Forward launched
The Port of Seattle kicks off a pilot project on April 21 to reduce the amount of polluted runoff reaching Puget Sound. The Port is hosting a two-year study site for two Splash Boxxes, unique metal boxes which will bloom into rain gardens and help reduce pollutants. This project is in partnership with King Conservation District, Sustainable Seattle, Gealogica LLC, and Splash Boxx LLC. More information coming soon.
April 26: Vist our stop on the NW Green Home Tour!
The annual NW Green Home Tour is back! This year, we will host a sustainability stop to highlight our work at Highland Park Improvement Club (HPIC). Join Sustainable Seattle, Rainwise, and Highland Park members to tour this illustrative demonstration of innovative green infrastructure, with a cistern (a super-sized rain barrels), multiple rain gardens and a brand new permeable paver community courtyard. These features were envisioned and designed by the community and installed with the help of neighbor power - including a work day at the first ever King County DePave Day in partnership with Stewardship Partners! Visitors can interact with the new features, design their own rain garden, talk to RainWise contractors, and more. Tours highlighting how the features are spreading into the neighborhood will also be available. Visit to enjoy food, drinks, fun learning activities for kids and adults, and the chance to talk to the community, non-profits and contractors that brought this project from vision to reality. Learn more about the project here.
