The Shared Strategy for Puget Sound is seeking stories that show
progress on the way to reaching our mutual goal of building
a cost-effective salmon recovery plan endorsed by the people
living and working in Puget Sound. We plan to publish select stories
in local papers, industry journals or newsletters or in a book.
Our hope and intent is to acknowledge and honor accomplishments
of individuals, groups and communities whose creativity and hard
work demonstrates what is possible. We also hope the stories will
inspire others to persevere and pursue their dreams of businesses,
programs and partnerships that improve the well-being of their
communities as well as their watersheds to benefit both people
