Just south of Seattle, Boeing has created the largest habitat restoration in the Lower Duwamish Waterway, transforming nearly one mile of former industrial waterfront into a wetland resource that improves Puget Sound salmon runs. This habitat work was coordinated with the Natural Resource Trustees, a group made up of local tribes and state and federal agencies, including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

video, released by NOAA, highlights this unique project as an example of what can be accomplished through a public-private partnership. Watch to learn about what went into this transformation and how the habitat benefits fish, wildlife and the communities of the Duwamish River.
