Sustainable Lands Strategy


The Sustainable Lands Strategy (SLS) was convened in 2010 by Snohomish County, Tulalip and Stillaguamish Tribes, state and federal agencies, and agricultural and environmental stakeholders to improve coordination and generate progress for fish, farm, and flood management interests.

Balancing the needs of various land use actions on a single landscape can understandably lead to conflict. The key behind the SLS is its mission to develop understanding, relationships, and strategies to create and achieve a shared vision and beneficial outcomes for our watershed. Each participant comes to the table with their own perspectives and desired future state, and a willingness to work with other perspectives to make sure our watershed is healthy, vibrant, and resilient.
