Time: 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM

Topic: We will be joined by representatives from of the Snohomish Conservation District, Snohomish County, and the Tulalip Tribes to discuss sustainable land strategy and the Thomas' Eddy Restoration Project.

The Sustainable Lands Strategy works by looking at large stretches of river and estuary -- typically 8 to 10 miles at a time -- and creating a package of proposals that generate net gains in agricultural, tribal cultural, and ecological productivity and health in these water bodies and adjoining lands.

The County’s work at Thomas’ Eddy proposes to reconnect the Snohomish River to the floodplain around Bob Heirman Wildlife Park, and improve or maintain opportunities for fishing, hiking and wildlife viewing while restoring critical habitat for wildlife and threatened salmon species. To ensure these goals are met, Snohomish County is soliciting early input on project design from the public and park users.

Guest Speakers:

  • Kari Quaas - Community Engagement Project Manager, Snohomish Conservation District
  • Morgan Ruff - Snohomish Basin Capital Projects Manager, Tulalip Tribes
  • Mike Rustay – Senior Habitat Specialist, Snohomish County

Plus, attendees will have a chance to ask questions.

Please RSVP to receive the ZOOM link – registered attendees will receive the link at registration and via email.
