Description    


South Fork Riparian is a combined acquisition and riparian restoration project. The project acquired 168 acres of floodplain and associated uplands along the South Fork Nooksack. The project also includes 235 acres of riparian forest in the project match to be perpetually protected as salmon habitat for a total of project size of 403 acres.

The acquisition properties are either adjacent to or form a continous corridor linking previously conserved salmon habitat properties along the South Fork. The riparian restoration work improved long-term conifer recruitment along the riparian zone of two of the three acquisition properties and on two adjacent properties. Lummi Natural Resources and Nooksack Natural Resources performed the restoration work as grant partners. Match provided by Whatcom Land Trust through a separately acquired conservation easement over 235 acres of riverfront property in the project area.

This project was consistent with the WRIA #1 Salmon Recovery Strategy by protecting functioning habitat for South Fork Chinook along with other anadromous species, restoring natural ecological processes on the South Fork floodplain and linking previously protected properties in the Acme-Saxon reach.

Project Benefit    


The goal of the project is to protect and restore native riparian vegetation along salmon bearing streams. The objective of the project is to protect and restore natural streamside vegetation, improve stream temperature, reduce erosion, filtration, and recruit large woody debris.
