Coastal Watershed Institute Celebrates Decade of Elwha Nearshore Restoration

Elwha nearshore Restoration - Dec. 2021

On the last day of the first year a decade after dam removals began we paused to celebrate the complex and ever-evolving Elwha nearshore. Here are a few bright posts from the last couple of weeks to celebrate a year of hard work, including recent successes by colleagues at Wild Fish Conservancy (“A Second Court Rejects Cooke Aquaculture’s Challenge Over Termination Of Port Angeles Net Pen Lease“), and the wonder and beauty of world-scale nearshore ecosystem restoration.

Pamela Adams, CWI volunteer beaver expert, provides a quick glimpse of her evolving understanding with the hard-working and shy Elwha coastal beaver, truly an unsung hero in nearshore ecosystem restoration.


We’re looking forward to another year of hard, but important work.

Happy and grateful New Year to, and from, all at the Coastal Watershed Institute!
