Continue to restore degraded fish habitat, via projects in Lead Entities' four-year work plans Protect and/or restore critical habitat for salmon populations.
In 2014, Phase I was completed through acquisition of 280 acres, now known as the Lyre Conservation Area. That property was critical to anchor future efforts. In future phases, North Olympic Land Trust will conserve additional privately-owned parcels along the Lyre River, along Nelson Creek, and along the Strait of Juan de Fuca, through fee-simple acquisition or conservation easement, and pursue restoration including undoing the channelization of the lower river and adding large wood to further improve existing salmon habitat.
