LOCAL INTEGRATING ORGANIZATIONS (LIOs)
Local communities around the Puget Sound are working to integrate local efforts to advance the Action Agenda. Local governments, tribes, non-profit organizations, watershed, marine resource, and salmon recovery groups, interest groups, businesses, educational organizations, and citizens are collaborating to develop and coordinate local integrating organizations that foster implementation of Action Agenda priorities. To learn more about how Local Integrating Organizations are contributing to regional recovery planning efforts, please visit the 2016 ACTION AGENDA UPDATE: LIO PLANNING page.
The local integrating organizations enable communities to guide the implementation of Action Agenda priorities at an ecosystem scale, and to prioritize local actions for investment.
To date, the Leadership Council has recognized local integrating organizations in nine geographic areas. For more information and to contact the local integrating organization in your area see the links below.
