WASHINGTON, Snohomish CD – With $10.4 million to grant, NOAA supported 19 new habitat restoration projects in 11 states. The funding source from NOAA’s restoration center supports productive and sustainable fisheries, healthy ecosystems, and resilient communities across the nation.

The Whidbey Basin is a critical “hot spot” for species recovery in Puget Sound and funding will go to the Tulalip Tribes, Snohomish Conservation District, The Nature Conservancy and WDFW to advance restoration of up to 2,350 acres of estuary habitat and 37 miles of river habitat.

Snohomish Conservation District will be leading a planning process to develop a pipeline of projects that support agriculture viability, salmon recovery, flood risk reduction and tribal priorities in Snohomish County.
