The Common Waters/Common Roots Proejct
The Common Waters/Common Roots project will accomplish successful on-the-ground riparian restoration projects within eight local watersheds--Deer Creek, Kwina Slough, Schell Creek, Silver Creek, Slater Slough, Smuggler's Slough, and the Lummi and Nooksack Rivers; all of which have a rich history of subsistence fishing by indigenous peoples of the Coast Salish tribes (including the Lummi Nation), but have been degraded by a combination of past land use practices and urbanization. Through the Common Waters/Common Roots (CWCR) project more than 400 local citizens will work to remove non-native and invasive plant species, plant more than 5,000 native trees and shrubs, and maintain these restoration sites located right in their backyards; improving water quality, air quality, and more than 6,000 feet of spawing and rearing habitat for salmonids along these eight streams.
