Made In Puget Sound® is a 509(a)(2) nonprofit corporation made up completely of volunteers. We are self-funded and 100% of the contributions we receive go towards our education and outreach programs for promoting a better and healthier Northwest. We collect valuable information about our cold emerald green waters and the captivating life thriving in those waters. Through my unique underwater photography and videography we provide a rare window into the underwater life of Puget Sound. We report on the most vital environmental issues affecting every one of us living in this region and provide workable, realistic solutions that allow everyone to become involved. Our local mountains, forests, rivers, lakes, streams and tributaries, each contributes to the majesty that is Puget Sound and the Salish Sea. All of these help make one of the most unique estuaries in the world. In 2018 we are greatly expanding our work. We're reporting much more intently on the important issues regarding Puget Sound and the Salish Sea. Were conducting more in-depth research into its amazing life and health. We're also increasing our focus on other local environmental issues and provide workable solutions to many of the problems.

Cover Photo: Eelgrass in Puget Sound. This is a plant that create beds and meadows growing in bays, coves, tidal creeks, and estuaries. Eelgrass beds are a vital haven for crabs, scallops, numerous other species of important fish, and wildlife. The long blades are often covered with tiny marine plants and animals like Hooded Nudibranchs. In the thick grass animals find habitat, protection from predators, nursery grounds, food, and oxygen.
