Project Title & Description
Enhancing the Skagit River Watershed
This grant supports a series of pilot projects in the Skagit Delta Estuary that will explore how viable farming and maintaining agricultural infrastructure can take place at the same time as wetland restoration and the improvement of fish and bird habitat. The project seeks to demonstrate how each of these land uses can be carried out so as to enhance the other.
Forty-five acres of wetlands will be restored and water quality monitoring set up to measure differences and improvements.
