2019 Powerful Partners celebration

On Feb. 13, PSE joined 24 Powerful Partner organizations to celebrate the fantastic work we achieved together in 2019. Attendees included Bainbridge Youth Services and West Sound Wildlife Shelter (WSWS), who were recipients in 2019.

WSWS bought a special guest along to join in the celebrations - Scout, a male Peregrine Falcon. Scout is an education ambassador for the shelter, and Lacey Brazeau led a discussion about WSWS’s work to rehabilitate animals and educate the communities they work in.

“While the shelter's main focus is the rehabilitation and release of injured and orphaned wildlife, we also have significant interest in community education”, said Lisa Horn, Executive Director. “It's a special privilege to bring our education ambassadors to the public, so guests can see the ambassadors more closely, for better insight and appreciation.”

We’re excited to work with another 24 Powerful Partners for 2020, including Housing Resources Bainbridge, and also the Kitsap Humane Society and the Great Peninsula Conservancy, which help to serve all of Kitsap. We work TOGETHER with our partners to educate, support and inspire others – our teams, our customers and the communities we serve to help preserve and protect our environment for future generations.
