Snohomish River Esturary Desription

Located just off Interstate 5 near Everett, one of Washington's largest cities, is a little known area called the Snohomish River Estuary.  This is a unique place where the nutrient rich waters of the Snohomish River come in contact with the saltwater of Possession Sound.  The overlapping of fresh and salt waters creates an area more productive in plant an animal species than a tropical rain forest.  At least 350 different kinds of birds and countless varieties of mammals and plants call this special place home. 

Public access to the Snohomish River Estuary can be gained at multiple locations which include the following:

Langus Park (Everett)
Ebey Waterfront Park (Marysville)
Spencer Island (SnoCo Parks)
Union Slough (Everett)
