Team effort

A two-year environmental cleanup at Seafarers’ Memorial Park involved too many people to list, but this “team photo” taken at last week’s re-opening includes many of the project’s key players. Port of Anacortes Project Manager Becky Darden (top row, second from right) led the effort, completing the third of five elements of a “Focus Fidalgo” cleanup. Back row, left to right (red vests): Shane Phillips, Coast & Harbor Engineering; Aaron Horine, Coast & Harbor Engineering; Larry Lehman, Grette Associates; Travis Neu, WHPacific; Becky Darden, PoA; Colie Hough-Beck, HBB Landscape Architects. Front row, left to right (orange jackets): Abhijit Joshi,
Chris Bailey, Robert Trahan, John Herzog, all from GeoEngineers. Some funding for the cleanup has been provided by the state as part of Governor Christine Gregoire’s “Puget Sound Initiative.” Other funding participants in this phase of the cleanup included the Port of Anacortes and Kimberly-Clark.

About Photographer Steve Berentson

A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
