With help from our partners and community scientists, the Green Futures Lab is testing new ways to heal and restore essential ecological function to our urbanized shorelines. Currently we are researching the use of floating wetlands — aka BioBarges – to provide juvenile fish habitat and water quality benefits along the Duwamish shoreline. Our Sweetgrass Shoreline Restoration project will explore ways to restore lost ecological health to urbanized shorelines in the region’s fresh and salt water bodies. Learn more about each project by visiting our project pages.
