Pierce County is teaming up with hundreds of organizations across Puget Sound to challenge residents to take at least one Sound-healthy action during May’s Puget Sound Starts Here Month.
The goal of Puget Sound Starts Here Month is to raise awareness that Puget Sound is in trouble due to a variety of pollution sources, and empower residents to make a difference through simple actions and local volunteer opportunities.
“The waterways of the Puget Sound area are a critical part of our community, industry and quality of life,” said Pierce County Executive Pat McCarthy. “Each of us taking a small, positive step adds up to a huge effect and helps maintain and protect Puget Sound for years to come.”
