Description    


The Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association implemented 17 riparian planting projects, totaling 61 acres, in priority reaches of the North Fork, Middle Fork, and South Fork Nooksack River and tributaries. The project sites included stream and river banks, channel islands and floodplains degraded by past agricultural and forestry land use practices. The primary objective of this project is to restore natural riparian processes critical for improving and maintaining salmonid habitat. These riparian plantings will benefit all salmonid species in the Nooksack River, with an emphasis on Chinook. Riparian plantings are identified as a high priority restoration action in the 2007 WRIA 1 Salmonid Recovery Plan.

Project Benefit    


The goal of this project was to plant 61 acres of priority reaches of the north, middle and south forks of Nooksack River and their tributaries. This project will plant riverbanks, channel islands and floodplains degraded by past agricultural and forestry land use practices.
