Working with Salmon & Steelhead Habitat, Harvest, Hatcheries, and Hydropower Systems
The Lower Columbia Fish Recovery Board works with state and federal agencies, local governments and non-profit organizations to design
and implement scientifically-sound restoration projects and innovative
strategies that will safeguard our water and other natural resources and
make our communities stronger into the future.
Protecting High Quality Habitat and Restoration Watershed Conditions
At the heart of our region are 18 watersheds and several thousand miles of rivers and streams that feed the main stem of the lower Columbia River and support salmon, steelhead and bull trout throughout their life cycle. Since 1998 the Board has help secure more than $60 million to implement projects that improve off channel and side channel areas for spawning and rearing, enhance stream conditions that support migrating fish and reducing unstable hillslopes that cause sediment buildup. Our sponsors include local public works departments, volunteers and tribal ecologists.
