Snohomish County is an active member of the Stillaguamish Watershed Council implementing many restoration projects. Here are two of their projects. The North Meander project increases side-channel slough habitat by 1.8 hectares - an increase of 18.5% over existing amounts - or 8% of the historical loss in lower river, by reconnecting 3,300 feet of side channel. 300 pieces of large woody debris were placed for complex edge and cover. A box culvert and a bridge were installed to reconnect the channel.
The Snohomish County Noxious Weed Control Board oversees the efforts by Snohomish County in controlling the spread and damage done by dangerous invasive weeds such as Spartina and Japanese Knotweed.
