Our Mission: Stillwaters advances scientific research, education, and restoration on Puget Sound lowland streams and estuaries.
The Carpenter Creek Estuary has always been a part of the landscape that we now call Kitsap County. Thanks to the vision of a couple of curious & caring founders twenty years ago, the estuary is coming back to life. Listening to the land reveals in little ways each year the vital role our watershed has to play in the ecosystem, and in the future of our local Kingston community. And the Stillwaters Community - our tireless citizen scientists, a small board, and a tiny staff - look forward to the secrets it will reveal over the next twenty years of resource stewardship.
