The Middle Fork Nooksack Fish Passage project is well underway, poised to open up 16 miles of pristine fish habitat this fall. The result of years of effort and partnership by the Nooksack Indian Tribe, Lummi Nation, City of Bellingham, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, American Rivers, conservation organizations and state and federal agencies, the Middle Fork Nooksack River Fish Passage Project will restore habitat for threatened steelhead, bull trout, and Chinook salmon, a vital food source to endangered southern resident killer whales. During Whatcom Water Week, learn more about this historic project by viewing this USFSW Restoring a River of Life storymap and visit the City of Bellingham project website to see current construction photos, then come back for future updates as the project wraps up later this year.
