Planning for the Jimmycomelately Ecosystem Restoration Project (the Jimmy Project) began in the late 1990’s, and the multiple project partners (27 total) recognized early on that this landscape-scale project could potentially serve as a model for stream channel and estuary restoration in other Puget Sound watersheds.
The vision of the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, Clallam County, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, Clallam Conservation District, Washington State Department of Transportation, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Washington Department of Natural Resources, local private landowners, and other partners was to: realign Jimmycomelately Creek into one of its historical, sinuous channels; integrate this channel realignment with improvements in, and restoration of, the estuary functions; and reestablish the pre-disturbance linkage between the fluvial and tidal energy regimes.
