Wetlands reeds

UW Bothell receives 100 percent renewable energy from local projects in Washington state, including the Skookumchuck Wind Energy Project.

The campus houses one of the largest and most complex floodplain restorations in Washington State. The 58-acre wetland is a sustainable, functioning floodplain ecosystem within an urbanizing watershed.

The Sarah Simonds Green Conservatory is a greenhouse, classroom and support space for research and public outreach — and houses an herbarium that facilitates studies of conservation, biodiversity and climate change.

The UW Bothell campus is free of pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. It has also been designated Salmon-Safe, in part because of work managing to stormwater runoff and the campus wetland.
