Event Title

Ten years of restoration and protection in Puget Sound: What's the impact on salmon?

Presentation Abstract

The Puget Sound Acquisition & Restoration (PSAR) program was created in 2007 to advance salmon recovery efforts through habitat restoration and protection in the Puget Sound. Working with local entities to identify and prioritize projects, PSAR has funded over 450 projects around Puget Sound and is an essential resource in implementing regional recovery plans for salmonid populations, including ESA listed Puget Sound Chinook. Ten years after its inception, a key next step includes assessing the cumulative effects of the PSAR program to understand how our actions are impacting salmon recovery and better support decision making in the region. This presentation will examine approaches to evaluate the PSAR program by exploring success criteria, measurements of program outcomes, and the development of a prioritization process that adapts to new science and information.
