Thursday, April 14, 2016, 5:30pm – 7:30pm

Waterfront Space, 1400 Western Avenue – Free and open to the public

Program: Research scientist Jeff Cordell will speak about his work with the Elliott Bay Seawall Project to create a design that supports habitat and salmon migration. Mr. Cordell was recently honored by the Seattle Aquarium for his role in the long-term research to design, install, and monitor large-scale test panels along the Seattle waterfront. Seattle is the first city in the world to incorporate habitat panels into a large portion of its seawall.


Throughout the spring, Friends of Waterfront Seattle hosts The Source series, a sequence of community open house events celebrating our waterfront as a source of heritage, creative inspiration, and appreciation for the natural world. This series also celebrates Waterfront Space, the project showroom for Waterfront Seattle, a source for project information and community engagement.

All evening events will include food, beer and wine, and a brief program presenting new perspectives on our waterfront’s history, ecology and art.
