Presentation: "Salmon Habitat Restoration Projects in Howard Miller Steelhead Park" by Sue Madsen, Restoration Ecologist - Skagit Fisheries Enhancement Group


Skagit Fisheries Enhancement Group has been working with the Skagit County Parks Department since 2006 to improve habitat at Howard Miller Steelhead Park in Rockport. They have re-routed a small tributary back into its historic channel, restoring more than 3/4 mile of stream, including almost 12 acres of wetland complex habitats within the park. The project approximately doubled the inflow into an existing backwater habitat, improving both fish access and water quality within the slough. Removal of invasive species and replanting of riparian areas along the new channel are further improving habitat conditions.


Free admission. Donations appreciated.
