The Pilchuck River is the first major tributary of the Snohomish River, and is a vital producer of Chinook, Steelhead, Coho and other salmon species. However, loss of side channel habitat and trees along the riverbank has decimated historical run sizes.
Tulalip is working with several collaborating landowners to restore floodplain channel connectivity, improve salmon habitat and plant natve trees in the prioritized Middle Pilchuck River. This Tulalip sponsored project includes comprehensive assessments, designs, outreach, and construction in due course. Project actions include removing a functionless levee, constructing side channels, installing in-stream habitat features, removing invasive plant species, and planting native trees.
