January 7, 2017
The public is invited to attend a presentation from Western Washington University students who have been studying restoration efforts and issues at Edmonds Marsh as part of the 2016-2017 Sustainable Cities Partnership between the City of Edmonds, WWU and the Association of Washington Cities. Students from WWU’s Restoration Ecology course will present their research on Friday, Jan. 13, from 2-4 p.m. in City Hall’s Brackett Room and make recommendations to address current challenges affecting Edmonds Marsh.
According to a city announcement, the students will present recommendations regarding both short- and long-term actions to address stormwater entering the marsh and to manage the ongoing spread of certain invasive plants in the marsh. The students will also share a conceptual idea for a public boardwalk into the marsh that would improve access while protecting marsh habitat and wildlife.
