Zach Moore, a King County field surveyor, recently caught the attention of some livestock in Enumclaw while working on the county’s inventory of barriers to salmon being able to access spawning habitat.

Since spring 2019, a four-person county team has been crisscrossing the county in search of in-stream structures, such as culverts, that prevent salmon from swimming upstream to available habitat. After a short pause related to the pandemic, the team is back in the field and will spend the next several weeks in the Enumclaw area. The comprehensive countywide inventory will identify up to 3,000 locations maintained by the county and then prioritize restoration work to get the most fish to the best habitat as soon as possible.

Some great ideas for restoring your backyard from Pierce Conservation DistrictA DIY GUIDE TO RESTORATION IN YOUR BACKYARD!
Did you know that habitat improvement and environmental restoration can be as simple as weed removal? Most non-native invasive plants (ie. weeds) have damaging effects to our systems even when they are not directly competing for space. Removing them keeps soil, water, and native critters healthy and happy; and it prevents them from spreading far and wide via wind, animals, and rhizomes.
