We at the Skagit Watershed Council know this community is doing what it takes to keep the impacts of the COVID-19 to a minimum in the Skagit Valley. We are all making personal sacrifices so that our loved ones and neighbors can get through this difficult time. Many individuals and organizations are working hard right now to make sure that environmental awareness and education are not among the things being sacrificed. On this page, we will be sharing our work and links to other online resources that may help our community.
