Over $500,000 in grants allows for restoration of three local salmon streams

  • Written by Briana Gerdeman

Three local streams can be restored to their natural state, thanks to grants from the Salmon Recovery Funding Board. The grants include $139,000 to the King Conservation District to restore shorelines at Two Mountains Farm near Duvall, $70,000 to the Sno-King Watershed Council to restore the shoreline in Squire’s Landing Park in Kenmore and $326,000 to Sound Salmon Solutions to begin restoration of Cherry Creek near Duvall.

The details and plans for the three projects differ, but the goals are similar: to undo the changes humans have made to the landscape and to benefit Chinook and other salmon, which in turn benefits other species, humans and the environment as a whole.

ANCHORHEAD COFFEE ‘We bottle happiness’

‘We are believers in doing what you love and loving what you do. And we make coffee for people who love coffee.’

When I first met Jake Paulson and Mike Steiner, their looks and demeanors were very misleading.  They appeared laid back and unassuming but in actuality, they are both very driven, successful businessmen. In less than two years, Jake and Mike have built a highly successful business, born out of a passion for their love of coffee, something they can hardly imagine living without. Jake and Mike are the co-owners and the driving force behind Anchorhead Coffee.

I recently had the opportunity to meet with Jake and Mike at their headquarters in Duvall. They specifically chose Duvall after establishing themselves at the Duvall Farmers Market. They were continually impressed by the overwhelming support they received from the Duvall community, so much so that they decided to base their business there.
