Oso Mudslide Memorial Committee
Oso Mudslide Memorial and Monument

Shortly following the March 22, 2014 mudslide, discussions began circulating about creation of a memorial to commemorate the Oso mudslide. The intent of the memorial was to remember the lives of the 43 individuals who lost their lives, recognize the unprecedented response effort that followed the event, honor the community that was lost and provide information about the slide itself. 

As families and the community have coped with grief, and the landscape has slowly begun to heal, calls for a memorial have become louder and steps are being taken to create a space at the site for gathering, learning, grieving and comforting.
