Description    


The Stillaguamish Tribe proposes to expand and enhance riparian forests on Tribally owned Haag, Segelsen, and Trafton properties. At the Trafton property, riparian restoration will include invasive/ noxious weed control and riparian planting. Habitat restoration site maintenance will occur at the recently restored Haag and Segelsen properties. Lastly the project will support nursery operations to generate native plants for all three properties suitable for the properties and culturally significant for the Stillaguamish Tribe. Nursery operations shall occur at an existing Tribal nursery.
Worksite specific objectives include:
• Trafton – 8-acre work area; pre- and post-planting weed control; initial riparian planting to establish riparian forest (4400 plants)
• Haag – 6-acre work area; stewardship weed control; supplemental maintenance of riparian planting to ensure target density for native plants (500 plants)
• Segelsen – 10-acre work area; stewardship weed control; supplemental maintenance of riparian planting to ensure target density for native plants (1100 plants)
Note: This project will serve as match for RCO project #16-1638. However, RCO project #16-1638 has metrics for acquisition only, while this project has metrics for restoration. All habitat treatment metrics have been circulated and reviewed between the Stillaguamish Tribe, RCO and NWIFC to ensure there is no duplication in reporting.

Project Benefit    


The goal of the project is to expand and enhance riparian forests along Chinook bearing waters of the Stillaguamish River. This will be accomplished by controlling non-native, invasive, and noxious weeds, and planting and maintaining native conifers, deciduous trees, and shrubs. The purpose of the project is to improve habitat benefits such as increased shade, floodplain roughness, and future large wood for recruitment to the channel to benefit Chinook and other salmon. All metrics have been circulated and reviewed between the Stillaguamish Tribe, RCO and NWIFC to ensure there is no duplication in reporting.
