The ESRP Learning Program conducts feasibility and pre-design projects of regional value to increase effectiveness of beach, embayment and river delta protection and restoration. Regional Feasibility and Predesign Projects (learning projects) support restoration of large and complex ecosystems subject to multiple projects, and are intended to improve effectiveness or efficiency of a class of projects where there is uncertainty about ecological outcomes. This component of ESRP’s investment strategy aims to clearly identify the need/problems to be addressed that will influence restoration and protection project development and selection in Puget Sound. ESRP learning projects will provide insight and analysis into the options available to solve complex problems leading to nearshore and salmon recovery in Puget Sound’s nearshore. It is our goal to fund efforts that use scientific methods to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of future ESRP program investments. ESRP’s learning project program is required by our authorizing program guidance, developed by the Puget Sound Nearshore and Ecosystem Restoration Project (PSNERP). Strong learning projects improve our ability to select treatment locations and management measures, and help designers evaluate the consequences of alternative actions. We organize our learning by landform to consider the unique dynamics of delta, beach and embayment ecosystems. Please see below for a list of completed and ongoing projects and links to their associated wiki pages.
