“Estuary Restoration in the Greater Skagit Delta, What is Monitoring Telling Us?”
Presented by: Callie Moore and Jenny Baker
Tuesday, February 8, 7:00 PM
Estuaries form where rivers meet the sea. This mixing zone teems with life. Estuaries provide rich feeding grounds for juvenile salmon to grow and transition to life in the waters of Puget Sound and beyond. Several estuary restoration projects in the Skagit delta have been completed over the last 2 decades to help with Chinook recovery. Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife (WDFW) and our partners monitor restoration sites to understand channel development, establishment of plant communities, and the fauna that inhabit the restored marshes. We will discuss lessons learned from monitoring these sites.
Callie Moore’s education and career began in riparian restoration and fisheries work in freshwater lakes and streams in Ontario. Her interest in birds has taken her to work on wildlife projects in the US and Canada. She has been a Wildlife Biologist with WDFW for three years in Whatcom and Skagit counties.
Jenny Baker has worked on stream, wetland, and estuary restoration for over 20 years. After surveying streams in Oregon, she engaged with private landowners on farms as a restoration planner for the Snohomish Conservation District. She has worked on estuary restoration projects in the greater Skagit delta for the last 13 years with The Nature Conservancy and now WDFW. Photo credit: Marlin Greene/One Earth Images.
