Featured Project

The Nisqually Watershed is a world class example of the effective cooperation between tribal, governmental, private and nonprofit institutions for early action to restore listed salmon species. Over the past several years, major projects have made steady improvements in the habitat restoration and salmon recovery, particularly in the Nisqually Estuary. To fully implement the Watershed Recovery Program, the Nisqually requires dedicated funding mechanisms that generate revenue averaging $10 million to $15 million each year for many years to come. Current annual funding for salmon recovery averages between $2 million and $3 million in operating expenses and $1 million to $6 million in capital expenses; approximately $3 million in new funding is needed to fully implement watershed maintenance and natural asset improvement recovery projects to meet restoration goals of the Watershed Recovery Program by 2055. This report highlights some specific approaches for generating this new funding. The report can be downloaded here.
