Join A Walk With Plants
Come along for a saunter through Normandy Park’s pristine green spaces to identify and learn about our ever-abundant medicinal and edible plants.
Jaime Van Doughty, gardener, naturalist, and herbalist, invites you to join her in exploring thriving wildlife with wonder at the forefront. On the trail, we will pause to identify medicinal and edible plants of the season, bringing our senses to a fine focus to learn more about habitat and the synergy between plants, animals, and people. This will surely be an opportunity to slow down, replenish and connect with the natural world. This is a free, family-friendly event! Please register in advance, as space is limited. The schedule for the walks is as follows:
- Nature Trails – Saturday, March 18th, from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm.

South King County Air Monitoring – Where should it be sited?
The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency (PSCAA) is looking for input on a new air monitoring site that will be located near Sea-Tac airport. PSCAA is the regional agency that oversees outdoor air quality in King, Kitsap, Pierce, and Snohomish Counties. Air monitoring sites help quantify the amount and impact of air pollution. PSCAA heard much public interest in air quality near airports and has funding to create a new air monitoring site near SEA Airport. They are reaching out to the communities around the airport to provide input on this site. Specifically, (1) where the site should be located and (2) what pollution sources are of interest.
PSCAA would appreciate your feedback by March 17th as they work to establish this site and make it a valuable resource for the community. So click here to take the survey and let your voice be heard.

Normandy Park Housing Survey Live
Help Us Look Ahead to Normandy Park in 2044! Communities across Washington state are continuing their journeys through the 2024 Comprehensive Plan Update. The Normandy Park 2044: Housing Survey presents an opportunity for community residents to give us their insights on the topic of housing, issues of residency, affordability, economic displacement, and our role in the region. Answers will be used to envision housing options in Normandy Park that are assets to the community, comforting to long-time residents, and welcoming to new families and individuals.
Join the Normandy Park Police, along with some of your neighbors, for Coffee with a Cop. We encourage you to come and gather with local law enforcement agencies for coffee and conversation. No agenda or speeches, just a chance to ask questions, voice your concerns, and get to know your community police officers.
