December 11, 2013  Dinner Meeting, including 2014 Board of Director elections and extended year-end social hour

Dinner Presentation by Brian Walsh

In 2007, the Puget Sound Partnership was created by the Legislature as the backbone organization that would connect citizens, governments, tribes, scientists and businesses to do three key things no other organization in Washington does:

*       Set science-based regional priorities for Puget Sound;
*       Accelerate implementation of priority actions; and
*       Ensure accountability for results.

Our Speaker, Brian Walsh, serves as the Planning Manager for the Partnership.  He will talk about how the organization uses science to focus actions that will have the biggest impact on recovery and how progress is measured by vital sign indicators, including water quantity and quality.  The agency is embarking on an amendment to the Puget Sound Action Agenda in 2014.  Come and learn more about what the amendments to the recovery roadmap will entail and how this will affect future investments that will lead to recovery.


Prior to joining the Partnership in 2013, Brian managed the Program Development and Operations Support Section of the Water Resources Program within the WA Department of Ecology. Among the responsibilities of the section was development of rules for the protection of instream flows, water resource legislation, climate change adaptation, aquifer storage recovery, water acquisition, and technical support for watershed planning. Brian had 25 years experience working within the Department of Ecology on a variety of natural resource policy issues including watershed planning, seawater intrusion, offshore oil and gas development, and enforcement policy. In addition to his work at Ecology, Brian served for 3 years as a policy analyst with the Northwest Power and Conservation Council's Washington State office where he developed staff recommendations for proposed habitat and hatchery projects under the Columbia Basin Fish and Wildlife Program. He also managed the Lead Entity grant program for salmon recovery while employed by the WA Department of Fish and Wildlife. Brian attended Prescott College and graduated with a degree in Environmental Planning from The Evergreen State College.
