A group of forty visitors toured the Edmonds Marsh today to learn about the ecosystem and plans to reduce area flooding. Leader Keeley O’Connell of EarthCorps said that 98 percent of similar Puget Sound marshes have been destroyed, and the Edmonds Marsh represents most of the remaining 2 percent. Today’s walk was sponsored by Celebrate Edmonds, as part of FeetFirst and Jane’s Walks, an international weekend celebrating walkable communities.
