Every day is Earth Day at Ecology! As Washington's environmental protection agency, we work in partnership with business, local and tribal governments, other state and federal agencies, scientists, and residents to protect and restore land, air, and water. 

To celebrate Earth Day, we're sharing with you some highlights of the work we do, and invite you to join us in loving and protecting this beautiful place we call home.

Investing in communities

Year-round, the work we do protects and restores land, air, and water across the state. In addition, roughly 70 percent of the money that comes to Ecology is passed through as grants and loans to communities. Below are just a few examples of the many ways we invest in communities to protect and restore the environment.
