To foster understanding and appreciation for our natural environment and to promote environmentally responsible practices with development and infrastructure within Kenmore and its surrounding areas.

PERK was established in April 2002 by a group of neighbors dedicated to preserving the natural environment and quality of life in Kenmore, Washington. Through education, litigation, and influencing the political process, we strive to conserve existing natural areas, restore degraded natural systems, and promote low-impact development.
