The Board

Our 15-member board includes representatives from local governments, the state legislature, the Cowlitz Indian Tribe, hydropower operators, environmental and landowner interests, and the public.  The Board listens, explores, partners, analyzes, and then writes and coordinates the implementation of plans to restore and manage our water and fish to abundance into the future. Our work is science-based and reflects the aspirations of our region. The plans and their implementation serve as the basis for all fish recovery by all groups seeking federal, state, and private funding for restoration projects and innovative strategies.
