No other developed area in the world matches the Puget Sound region's combination of beauty, wealth, natural resiliency, and history of environmental concern.Saving Puget Sounddevelops a practical proposal to conserve the Puget Sound region's most important ecosystems in the face of long-term population growth, drawing lessons that are relevant across the Northwest and in other parts of the country. It provides both a vision for conservation and a detailed review of the political and legal issues that must be at the core of any practical strategy to achieve it.[Kemmis 2001] At the base of my property, next to Victory Creek, there is a hollowed-out cedar stump, which still bears the notches loggers cut ...
