People for Puget Sound Speaker Series

Going to do a little blogging blitzkreig here, so to start off, something that arrived in the old email box today, PPS's speaker series. If the Puget Sound is going to get healthy, cities are going to have to be part of that solution, from encouraging more walkable communities to protecting the riparian corridors that snake across the city, it is the cities where most of us live and, in our daily decisions, it is where we hurt the Sound most. So let's figure out how to fix it. Here are the details
