This project proposes the restoration of 108 acres of inter-tidal wetlands on the former Nalley Farm property located within the Skokomish Indian Reservation, near the mouth of the Skokomish River, at the Great Bend of Hood Canal. Approximately 3,650 linear feet of dike surrounding the property on the West side of the Nalley Slough will be removed. The borrow pits just landward of the dikes will be refilled and leveled in order to allow even tidal flows from the outer promoting the natural...

Estuaries are the mixing zones between fresh and salt waters. Tidal mouths of streams and rivers are estuaries, but so is the larger Puget Sound. Estuaries are characterized by smaller sediments that are carried in from terrestrial runoff and subsequently carried out by tidal influences, often creating large mud flats or surrounded by sandy beaches. Estuaries in their natural states are highly productive ecosystems and are characterized by highly diverse plant and animal communities since...

This project represents Phase Two of the Skokomish River Estuary Restoration, which will restore natural estuarine functions by removal of agricultural dikes and seawall. This project will focus on the Skokomish River's lower island referred to locally as Nalley Island. This project will act on the recommendations of a 1995 Army Corps of Engineers study that identified removal of agricultural modifications as a priority action to rehabilitate estuarine habitat. This project will also initiate...

This project represents Phase Three of the Skokomish River Estuary Restoration, and uses an adaptive and staged approach in the original Phase I area. Phase III includes additional salt marsh in the western edge of the estuary and wetland/channel connectivity in the phase I site. This phase is a continuation of Phase I and II and will restore estuarine functions by re-connecting wetland channels through the salt marsh, restoring tidal channels, enhancing roads to connect natural wetland...

This is a request for matching funds ($400,000) for a National Coastal Wetlands grant award of $980,000 for the continued restoration of the Skokomish Estuary. This proposal addresses hydrologic continuity from a forested wetland complex by opening barriers to stream flow and anadromous salmonids. This project includes 10 new stream crossings on a power line access road connected to SR 101 and 7 new stream crossings on Skokomish Flats Road and restoration of 0.5 miles of existing stream...

The Nisqually River Estuary is a rich ecosystem important to a variety of migratory fish, birds and other wildlife. Dikes were built in the early 1900’s to preclude tidal inundation and converted large areas of saltmarsh habitat into pastures. Today various efforts are in the way to reclaim these important habitats for wildlife and especially for salmon habitat.

Monitoring of the physical and biological response to the 140 acres of tribal estuary restoration on the east side of the river. This includes areas that were part of the Red Salmon Slough Restoration and Levee Removal Projects (PRISM #'s 02-1552, 09-1775)

The site of this project is the 410 acre Braget Farm, located on the Pierce County side of the Nisqually Delta and now owned by the Nisqually Indian Tribe. In July 2000 the Tribe completed an inventory and preliminary restoration plan for the farm which identified estuarine restoration opportunities and established a priority for implementation. This project used this grant to address the highest priority identified in that plan by restoring 49 acres of former pasture to its original salt...

This monitoring project proposes to integrate the Nisqually Tribe's ongoing fish sampling (beach seining) with habitat specific hydrology and invertebrate capacity to determine the relative contribution of the Nisqually River Delta Restoration landscape mosaic for juvenile Chinook. The specific objectives are to: 1. Examine the opportunity for juvenile Chinook to access habitat mosaics. 2. Characterize the improved capacity offered by newly restored habitats for salmon smolts during the...

The Nisqually Indian Tribe used this funding for restoration work on the 410-acre Braget Farm, located on the Pierce County side of the Nisqually Delta and now owned by the Nisqually Indian Tribe. This project returned 100 acres of former pasture to estuarine conditions through the removal of over 4000' of dikes. Associated borrow ditches were filled with dike material and historic Red Salmon Slough channels were reconnected. Salt marsh is expected to develop in the northern half of the...

This is the single most important habitat project in the Nisqually salmon recovery plan. 4.5 miles of the outer dike was removed in the summer of 2009 allowing the natural regeneration of estuary habitat and reconnection of over 21 miles of historic tidal channel on 762 acres. This project combined with the restoration on the Tribe's estuary lands will result in, and is the primary opportunity for, significant increases in the productivity and capacity of Nisqually Chinook. All the...

This project will restore approximately 110 acres of diked pasture in the Nisqually Delta and return it to its original estuarine condition by removing and setting back approximately 6000 linear feet of dikes. The result will be an estimated 18% increase of total saltmarsh and fresh/salt transitional habitat in the Nisqually Estuary. The project will be accomplished by removing the dikes, which impede the tides from inundating the southern areas of Red Salmon Slough. This is the second and...

In the Nisqually watershed strategy, restoration of the estuary is the highest priority habitat action. Scientific modeling indicated restoration of the entire estuary will result in a 100% increase in naturally produced Nisqually chinook salmon. The model estimated an increase of the estuary carrying capacity for Nisqually salmon by at least 9% as a result of this project. Further, because the Nisqually River estuary provides a high percentage of estuarine habitats in southern Puget Sound,...

The Mason Conservation District will implement this instream habitat restoration project on the Mainstem Skokomish River between river miles 4.1 and 5.7. This project will improve instream habitat throughout the1.6 mile long reach by installingLWD to facilitate sediment storage, sediment processing, normative channel patterns, and stable vegetated islands (where appropriate). This project will support recovery of ESA listed Chinook Salmon as it addresses highest priority issues by...
