Notes

  • "Nearly two decades ago, in 2005 the Port of Everett constructed the 24-acre Union Slough, a restoration project as mitigation for development of the Port’s Pacific Terminal at the international Seaport. The site has since provided mitigation for several Port projects, including construction of the North Docks which added 220-slips to the Marina in 2007. Today, aquatic bird life, Dungeness crab, juvenile salmonids and many other forms of wildlife and plant life are now observed on what was once a diked agricultural field. Working with the volunteer organization EarthCorps, the Port monitors the human impact on its Union Slough restoration ecosystems and conducts regular volunteer work parties at the site to ensure continued success of this restoration project." - from Port website 2022
