On March 22, 2014 at 10:37 am, forty-three lives and a vibrant riverfront community were lost in an instant as mud and debris flowed down from the surrounding mountainside devastating the homes and highway in Oso, Washington.
The Snohomish County Parks Team is working with family members of the victims and survivors to raise funds to engineer and construct a permanent SR 530 Mudslide Memorial on the thirteen acre memorial property. Most of the site will remain natural, while approximately 4 linear acres along the Whitehorse Trail will be developed into the Memorial, paying tribute to those who were lost, those who survived, the community that was lost and the communities that responded.
The Dollar Up for Oso campaign is just one way you can help raise needed funds. Whether you buy tickets online at Etix.com or in person at one of our ticket booths, consider adding just $1 to your order to benefit the Memorial fundraising.
