Scene in Edmonds: City councilmember deep in mud

City Council Member David Teitzel was sighted standing in mud up to his knees last Saturday helping clear invasive nightshade plants in the Edmonds Marsh. City Councilmembers Vivian Olson and Diane Buckshnis have also joined community volunteers in restoring creek flows in the marsh. The community volunteer restoration project will continue from 9 to 11 a.m. every Wednesday and Saturday until mid-September. (Photo by Chris Walton)

  1. Wonderful to see so many volunteers out helping save our Marsh. More volunteers are always needed, so please come out and have some fun in the mud! We are making incredible progress this year and many thanks to Joe and Nancy Scordino for their vision and guidance in preserving this natural treasure for us all to enjoy, including the critters.

  2. Once Joe, his volunteers and our better city council persons like Dave, Vivian and Diane get this baby restored and working properly; the trick will be to keep the development and tourist minded strong mayors, we always seem to choose, from selling it out from under us. In the next few years, I fully expect there will be a cry from on high to build closer and higher level view condos and apartments as close to the marsh as possible.
