Hear from our staff on their projects and interesting sightings from the field.
Ongoing - seeking interested Veterans for our Veterans Conservation Corps crew. Positions are active during the months of March to October.
From Stanwood to Darrington, and Monroe to Bothell, we covered some ground with rain gardens this October to help filter pollutants out of stormwater runoff. Thanks to the many partners and volunteers who made it possible!
Did we hit our 20,000 pound goal of food donated to the food bank? ALMOST! Way to go, Project Harvest folks, and Jill, our WSU intern.
We are so thankful to the 20 horse folks that came to our Horsekeeping in the Winter Wet farm tour.
Funding is currently available for certain projects in the Lower Stillaguamish PIC Project area.

Konnerup Construction has installed the Russell Road culvert! Paving will begin on Friday, September 28th.
Week Four has come and gone, and the construction crew has moved on to the culvert replacement at Russell Road.
This week marked yet another fast and productive week at the project site. The box culvert was delivered on Tuesday, and by Friday afternoon, Barnum/Triangle Bay Road was re-opened. The road section at the stream where work occurred is currently loose gravel, so please drive slowly and use caution when driving the road.
What a great way to spend an evening - harvesting corn for those in need and seeing up close the connection between our urban residents and the agricultural land that feeds them!
Patience is a virtue as they say. And, here at Snohomish Conservation District (SCD), we practice that skill every day. We can have staff leave and return years later before projects are completed. The Kristoferson Creek fish passage is one of those projects.
