Upper Cowlitz - Cispus Habitat Strategy
The Lower Columbia Fish Recovery Board worked with community stakeholders to develop a habitat restoration and conservation strategy for the upper Cowlitz and Cispus watersheds in 2018 and 2019. This strategy supports near and long-term ESA-listed salmon and steelhead recovery needs.
A project summary was presented at the December 2019 LCFR Board Meeting, and is available to review here.
