Chuckanut Transition, a group of folks building resilient community within the Samish Watershed, believes all hope lies in our ability to connect with place and with one another.  Essentially, by becoming indigenous to our watershed, we are creating lives that are more meaningful, healthy and joyful.  Please join us!
