From Wetland to Runway to Wetland Again

When they decommissioned the Naval Air Station at Seattle’s Sand Point, they asked the local community what they wanted to do with the land.  One of the things the community wanted was their old wetlands back. 

Planning for the project began in 2001.  Now, in the Magnuson Park wetlands—reclaimed from the tarmack—tree frogs and eighteen species of dragonfly flourish, along with swallows, teals, flickers, red-tailed hawks and 70 species of plant.
