Happy and safe holidays to you and your family!

SVENA stands for Skykomish Valley Environmental & Economic Alliance. Our mission is to protect an environmentally and economically sustainable future of the Skykomish River Valley. We are working towards a safer, cleaner, healthier, more beautiful and economically sustainable place to live, work and visit. You can find more information at our website svena.org.

SVENA does not affiliate with any political party but supports candidates who have similar goals and vision.


Currently our priorities are:

  • Sustainable economy

Tourism and recreation industry is the biggest sustainable economic opportunity in the Skykomish River Valley. It heavily depends on high quality of landscape, infrastructure and user experience in order to be able to compete for top dollars locally, nationally and internationally.

  • Protection of our watershed

Our watershed is a source of drinking water for local private and public wells. It is against the law in WA State to contaminate such watersheds with toxic substances.
