VIEWPOINT | Environmental Health is here for the public

  • Today at 2:00PM

Living on Whidbey Island for over 20 years, I’ve had the opportunity to work with a lot of great organizations including the Whidbey Institute, Whidbey Watershed Stewards, Fort Casey State Park and as Environmental Educator for the City of Oak Harbor. Now I work for Island County’s Environmental Health Department, and serve as an active member of Whidbey ECO Network. I believe that by pooling our expertise and resources we’re able to work more effectively to protect Whidbey’s water quality.
