Celebrating the People Who Protect Our Waterways

Each fall, we take time to recognize the people and organizations that protect our waterways by coming together over good food and drink on the shores of Lake Union. This event brings together tribal representatives, specialists in water law and dedicated community members to enjoy each other’s company, build relationships and be inspired by our keynote speaker.  It is also the evening we bestow the Ralph Johnson Water Hero Award on those whose dedication to protecting water rights and streamflows inspires us. 

Congratulations to our 2023 Water Hero,

Carla Carlson
