Stillwaters Environmental Center

Stillwaters Environmental Center is an environmental science and education center in the Carpenter Creek watershed of Kingston, WA, on the shores of Puget Sound. Stillwaters was established in 1999 to advance scientific research, education and restoration in Puget Sound lowland streams and estuaries. Acting as stewards of the Carpenter Creek estuary, Stillwaters spearheaded the removal of two culverts which once choked the system. The new bridges serve commuters and migrating salmon traveling through this unique ecosystem. Since then, we have collaborated with volunteer citizen scientists, college interns, and graduate students to monitor estuary recovery and implement restoration strategies. Our education programs serve the schools, libraries, and community groups of North Kitsap, and promote awareness and understanding of our local environment and how we can help it thrive. We welcome you to join us as we dive into our next twenty years of stewardship and community connection.
