About the Puget Sound Partnership
The Puget Sound Partnership is the state agency formed to mobilize the region’s collective effort to restore and protect Puget Sound. Working with more than 750 governments, tribes, scientists, businesses, and nonprofits, the Partnership coordinates and catalyzes partner action around a common agenda, mobilizes Sound investments, and tracks progress to optimize recovery.

The Puget Sound Action Agenda is the road map of work needed to restore the health of the ecosystem while maintaining the prosperity of the region. Focused on three region-wide initiatives that guide this priority work (prevent pollution from stormwater runoff, protect and restore habitat, and recover shellfish beds), the Action Agenda integrates existing basin-wide and watershed-scale plans into the overall plan for the recovery of Puget Sound.
