Dawn Pucci

We all have an important role to play in recovering our ecosystems that support where our food is grown, wildlife thrives, tourists visit and families work and play.
— Dawn Pucci

Island County and Dawn specifically have supported the District and salmon recovery in the Salish Sea for many years. She views her role as helping all salmon recovery stakeholders succeed, and she does an amazing job of supporting the volunteers, organizations, and her own department staff in accomplishing the watershed’s goals. Recently, Dawn helped advocate for funding, and provided design and engineering review, construction support, permitting assistance, publicity, and public engagement for our Kristoferson Creek Fish Passage Projec, and her leadership of the Salmon Recovery Technical and Citizen Committee has strengthened the committee’s reach and coordination across watersheds in Port Susan and Puget Sound.
