PSSH Month Postponed to September

Hello Puget Sound Residents,

Happy May Day! Normally we would be celebrating the start of Puget Sound Starts Here (PSSH) Month, but like many aspects of life right now we are changing and adapting. Part of staying home and staying safe is staying connected and well informed about available resources and guidelines. As a way to not drown out these important messages, we will instead celebrate PSSH month in September.

Even though we will not be celebrating PSSH month during May, that does not mean we stop celebrating the joys of living in this beautiful area. Make sure to take walks, go outside, and breath in that fresh PNW air.

Many migratory birds like the Rufous hummingbird are making their way back to the PNW this spring and summer. As you are out on walks with your dogs, pay attention to the birds you see and hear. Download a bird identification app like Merlin Bird ID and see if you can identify them. Take a photo and share it with us on our Facebook page!

And as always, don’t forget your poop bags on your walks, it is your dog doogity! Check out our Dog Doogity music video to help you remember. We can all do our part to keep our lands and our waters clean and healthy. Remember, Puget Sound starts right here in your own front yard.

If you are looking for an interactive activity you can share with your friends and family while you remain indoors, make sure to join us for Survive the Sound, May 4-8! Pick your favorite fish character and track it on its migration through Puget Sound. Invite your friends and race them over the epic 5-day journey.

Like the creatures that inhabit our forests and oceans, we are resilient. We will get through this and we cannot wait to celebrate PSSH Month with you all in September. Be safe, be well, and enjoy these calm moments as we all know life can be all too chaotic.
