    City of Edmonds

    Visitors at the Edmonds Marsh will find new interpretive signs to explain the history of the area as well as the effects of development and cleanup efforts.

EDMONDS -- Eight new interpretive signs have been installed along the walkway at the Edmonds Marsh, one of the few urban saltwater estuaries remaining in the Puget Sound area.
The marsh, between the city's waterfront and Edmonds Way, is home to numerous species of wildlife, and is also a rest stop for migrating birds. The new interpretive signs aim to give visitors a much better idea of the ecological importance of the marsh and the processes that are occurring there.
The signs were paid for by a grant from the Hazel Miller Foundation, a trust set up to serve people who live in Edmonds and south Snohomish County. Owen Caddy, a graphic designer, created the signs for the walkway. He's the same designer who has made signs that are located at Marina Beach, Brackett's Landing, Olympic Beach and the Public Fishing Pier.
The signs aim to explain the changes that have occurred in the marsh since the settlement and development of the city of Edmonds since 1870. The impacts of development as well as cleanup and restoration efforts are explained on one of the interpretive panels that includes an historical timeline.
Another of the panels shows Edmonds Marsh as a part of a bird migration corridor with birds flying from Arctic nesting grounds to wintering areas south of here and stopping to rest in Edmonds.
