The King County ECO Net is a partnership of non-profit organizations, government agencies, and private entities working collaboratively to engage our local community in the protection of Puget Sound. Support for ECO Net comes from King County.
Our members believe in the importance of community education: from student field trips and tours of salmon-bearing creeks, to day-long excursions on a 133-foot sailboat. Each one of us -- citizen, business-owner, lawmaker, or volunteer -- has a role in protecting Puget Sound. But first we must understand how positive, easy, and crucial our individual actions can be.
Member organizations are using all available tools. With missions that include monitoring county land-use, protecting Puget Sound and underserved populations from harmful pollutants, and effectively communicating current science, ECO Net members approach the issue from many angles, be it legal, legislative, or policy.
In order to protect Puget Sound, a community needs resources. ECO Net members regularly offer trainings that provide tools and tricks that have a direct, positive impact on the health of Puget Sound. Look for a natural yard care, rain garden, or auto leak detection workshop near you.
