Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association
NSEA removed three consecutive barriers, two culverts, and a concrete dam. The culverts were replaced with steel bridges. Approximately 300 feet of new channel was constructed, mimicking upstream and downstream reference reaches, and providing fish passage to 1.1 miles of largely-undisturbed spawning and rearing habitat.

CBFTF opened up 2.35 miles of spawning and rearing habitat for five species of salmonids by removing three barriers in the Wynoochee River Basin, and by replacing them with two bridges and one bottomless arch culvert.
Willapa Bay Regional Fisheries Enhancement Group
Staff, board and volunteers of Willapa Bay Regional Fisheries Enhancement Group install Remote Stream Incubators (RSIs) each year. RSIs are systems often installed in streams to allow salmon eggs to be reared and released with minimal handling. Some years, they have released 1.4 million fish!

Sound Salmon Solutions
Restored a riparian buffer on both banks of Grant Creek (by removing invasive plants and replanting with native vegetation) with goals to increase habitat diversity, reduce in-stream temperatures, provide woody inputs, and supply runoff filtration. The project involves community volunteers, an engaged landowner, local school groups, and local fishing groups.
