Whole watershed restoration and management requires a collaborative effort with diverse landowners across the peninsula.

Restoration activities include: improving water quality, restoring fish passage, and recovering aquatic health by stabilizing, decommissioning, and upgrading hundreds of miles of old logging roads within the forest.

Projects also include the removal of fish passage barriers and habitat improvements along hundreds of miles of critical fish streams throughout the peninsula.  

What priority watersheds are we collaborating within? 

We are actively collaborating to restore three priority watersheds that fall within the Olympic National Forest:

Where are these priority watersheds located?

The Calawah Watershed falls within the Washington Coastal Basin on the Northwest area of the peninsula. The Dungeness and Skokomish Watersheds are located within the Puget Sound Basin on the Northeast and Southeast area of the peninsula.
