Project Description:

Skagit Fisheries Enhancement Group (SFEG) proposes riparian restoration at Riverfront Park to provide the opportunity for underprivileged members of the Skagit Valley community to engage in a project that will convert 7 acres of thick blackberry brambles into a healthy native ecosystem consisting of native riparian plants. Restoration on this site will protect water quality on a TMDL listed tributary to the Skagit River while also improving habitat for salmon, wetland birds, and other wildlife. Key partners included in this project are the City of Sedro-Woolley, Cascade Middle School, Clear Lake Elementary, and the Kulshan Creek Neighborhood Youth Program. Volunteer work parties and service learning projects involving targeted school and special interest groups will be carried out in the fall of 2019 and spring of 2020 to plant more than 4000 native trees and shrubs along the stream.
