Description

The collaborative process plays a critical role in habitat restoration. With support from a federal grant, the Skagit Fisheries Enhancement Group has been working with the Samish Nation to restore areas along the Samish River after the removal of the noxious weed knotweed. This effort has involved a collaborative strategy between the Samish and Skagit Fisheries to engage landowners and the community to achieve restoration and noxious weed control. In addition, Skagit Fisheries has a broader approach to community engagement and working with landowners to achieve restoration for salmon habitat. Case examples will be presented to showcase these efforts.
