Blogger icon Our ECOconnect blog tells it like it is

Public servants in Ecology’s 11 environmental programs are busy every day protecting our state’s water, land, and air. Not everything we do is newsworthy, but it is important and interesting. ECOconnect gives us a chance to tell you more of the story, helps you know who we are and what we do, and gives you a chance to let us know what you think!

YouTube icon See our videos on YouTube

As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words! Ecology’s YouTube channel hosts videos highlighting some of the work we do on behalf of the environment and the citizens of Washington. Some are entertaining, some educational, and hopefully all are interesting! We also link to our favorite videos from other agencies and organizations who share our mission to protect land, air, and water.

Ecology believes in public participation. Occasionally, there are issues that are very complicated and we need and want to know what people think. One way to communicate with you and to hear your views is through EcoForum, our online public meeting place. The forum isn’t always active, but it’s always available for you to read the questions and discussions that have taken place.
