November 15, 2022
The storymap features more than 20 restoration projects created in Commencement Bay, representing an investment of more than $70 million in pollution settlements. The entire portfolio of sites is protected by a long-term monitoring and adaptive management effort called the Commencement Bay Stewardship Collaborative.
Read the story or peruse the detailed map featuring before-and-after images and historical context. You can also follow the hypothetical journey of a salmon that can now use the restored sites like stepping stones as it swims up the Puyallup River from the bay to spawn.
