In 1990, the Washington State Legislature created the Regional Fisheries Enhancement Group (RFEG) Program to involve local communities, citizen volunteers, and landowners in the state's salmon recovery efforts. As one of the 14 RFEGs, NSEA was organized in 1990 as a coalition of community members and partners who work together for restoration of wild salmon runs in Whatcom County, from the Canadian border to the Skagit Watershed.


  • NSEA operates a native plant nursery, where they grow out bare root stock in pots.
  • They operate with a WCC crew, as well as an intern crew from WWU, and tend to follow a community workparty model focused on revegetation at sites all over Whatcom County.
