Leque Island is a historical river delta island located in the Stillaguamish Delta, managed by WDFW as part of the Skagit Wildlife Area. Restoration is underway, with first tides on October 15, 2019. Leque Island is bisected by a causeway constructed to connect Camano Island and the Mainland, with restoration focused on the southern half of the island. There are additional restoration actions conceptualized for improving connectivity on a naturally breached area on the northern island.
