Skagit Watershed Council
Formed in February 1997, the Skagit Watershed Council is a community partnership for salmon. The Council supports and endorses voluntary restoration and protection of natural landscape processes that formed and sustained the habitats to which salmon stocks (as well as other native aquatic and riparian dependent species) are adapted.
By means of collaboration, technical assistance and education, we seek to fulfill our mission, which is to understand, protect and restore the production and productivity of healthy ecosystems in order to support sustainable fisheries. The Skagit Watershed Council is the Designated Lead Entity under Washington State Legislation ESHB 2496, a salmon recovery planning act, and is responsible for submitting a habitat restoration project list to the Salmon Recovery Funding Board. http://www.skagitwatershed.org
