Sustainable Communities Partnership Celebrates Year of Working with Skagit County

Western Washington University’s Sustainable Communities Partnership (SCP) will celebrate the successful completion of its second year working with regional communities at a year-end event on Monday, June 4.

This academic year, SCP partnered with Skagit County on eight projects, all of which were designed to contribute to a more thriving county. These projects have engaged eight faculty and 73 students, in close to 7,000 hours of work. The following projects will be highlighted in presentations this coming Monday.

  • Outreach to Junk Collectors
  • An Edison Community Plan
  • A Rainwater Catchment Template
  • Locating Septic Systems

Join SCP program staff, faculty, students, and local administrators from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Monday, June 4, at Skagit County Public Works, 1800 Continental Place, Mount Vernon. All are welcome! Please RSVP to let SCP staff know you are coming. We will be joined by Skagit County Commissioners, staff, and community members, as well as Western Washington University staff, faculty, and students. 

SCP also partnered with the City of Stanwood this year. A celebration with final presentations will be announced separately.
