Puget Soundkeeper Alliance – Protecting & Preserving Puget Sound

Salute to the Sound: October 2021

Puget Soundkeeper invites you to join us this October for our annual Salute to the Sound!

The celebration kicks off with an in-person Floating House Party outside, on Lake Union on Oct. 3. Then, we’re hosting over a dozen added opportunities to head out around the Sound for clean-ups and patrols during a Week of Action (Oct. 9 – 15). Our celebration wraps up on October 15, at 7pm, for our live-streaming Virtual Salute to the Sound!

We hope to see you all this October – in person, online, or on the water!

“EPA’s course-correction is a vital step forward, and couldn’t be more timely,” said Sean Dixon, Executive Director at Puget Soundkeeper. “Communities around the state rely on these water quality standards to ensure their fish and shellfish resources can thrive and are safe to eat. When the standard for safety is lowered, real lives — and livelihoods — are put at risk.”
