What you will hear:
Come kick off the new decade of GrIP at EarthLab on the University of Washington’s campus, from 2-4 PM on January 16th. This month’s topic will be “Ocean Acidification and Its Impact on Puget Sound” and we will learn about the connection to polluted stormwater runoff. Attendees will get an overview on the current state of ocean acidification and the challenges we face in combating this issue locally, as well as the impacts on marine life and water quality in the Sound. We will also learn about actions being taken by local stakeholders to quantify mitigation impacts and how we can further engage our local leaders to take action. It is our hope that this topic will help us think holistically about the ecosystems in Puget Sound and the interconnectedness of stormwater management, polluted runoff, and the overall quality of our water bodies.

Our sincere thanks to EarthLab for leading efforts on this topic by hosting the Washington Ocean Acidification Center and providing space for this meeting
