Snohomish Conservation District partners with City of Edmonds each year to provide stewardship opportunities for youth, community events, and stormwater solutions.
Project Highlights & News
Thanks to a study funded by the Nature Conservancy and Boeing, the cities of Edmonds and Lynnwood may be getting a very ‘green’ makeover soon. The study conducted by Snohomish Conservation District, Forterra and Edmonds Community College, looked at the feasibility of incorporating Community-Based Stormwater Solutions on private and public land in the Perrinville Watershed– projects like rain gardens, planting trees along streets, and gardens in the right-of-way that reduce flooding and pollution in local waterways.
The City of Edmonds is working with the Conservation District and WSU Extension to start a Rain Garden Program to promote the use of rain gardens around the City. As a way to jump start the program, we're organizing a rain garden cluster installation in a neighborhood in Edmonds.
