CHIN7: Continue to restore degraded fish habitat, via projects in Lead Entities' four-year work plans CHIN7.1: Protect and/or restore critical habitat for salmon populations.
In 2016, NOLT and the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe completed a prioritization of parcels in the Elwha River watershed, including Indian Creek and Little River. The project partners believe that long-term conservation strategies for the Elwha River can be best addressed by protecting the best existing salmon habitat and ecosystem function while identifying and treating limiting factors on private land. Limiting factors include habitat degradation and loss, floodplain modification, channel conditions, riparian conditions, water quality, and biological processes (Habitat Limiting Factors for WRIA 18). In 2019 and 2020, we have partial funding to conserve priorities #4 and #10.
