As salmon return to the waters of Puget Sound and our streams and rivers, they are affected by what happens on the land all around them, the watershed. A watershed is an area of land where all the water drains in to the same place, like a lake, river or Puget Sound.

Every drop of water in the watershed– whether it is from your shower, lawn sprinkler, or car wash – finds its way to Puget Sound. This is why Puget Sound Starts Here, with you, and why we all have a responsibility to keep Puget Sound clean.

Find out what you can do to help keep Puget Sound clean.
