Key Peninsula-Gig Harbor-Islands Watershed Council
The mission of the Key Peninsula-Gig Harbor-Islands (KGI) Watershed Council is to foster wise stewardship of the KGI Watershed. The Council provides educational programs, outreach, and workshops for watershed residents and encourages the collaboration and involvement of all watershed residents and businesses.
Our KGI Work Plan for 2019 is ready and features plans for several work parties, programs on enhancing watershed native plant canopy, and a good look at how climate change affects our area. The Lu Winsor grant process goes on this spring: accepting applications beginning in March and celebrating the grant-supported work in June. Mark your calendars for general meetings on March 13, April 3 (a night meeting), and June 12.
Attend an upcoming meeting (below) or look for the council at a variety of outreach events this year including:
