Welcome to Sound Living 2015
A One-Day Communiversity

We are pleased to bring you a day of learning showcasing the connections between water, land and people in the Salish Sea landscape.

This year, we are offering a slimmed down menu of 7 presentations to choose from, featuring an array of topics and skilled presenters that are working in their fields today.  We will focus on the Vital Signs of Puget Sound - key ecosystem indicators and improvement targets adopted five years ago to assess whether we're making progress in restoring the Sound.  While Puget Sound continues to be a vibrant, beautiful landscape gifted with thousands of rivers, streams, forests, wildlife and plants, it is also home to over 4 million people living and working here who put pressure on the natural systems of the region.  Sound Living 2015 attendees will learn about the research and status of six of the vital signs and the outlook for tomorrow and beyond. 

The hardest choice you'll have to make is which presentations to select!
