The Stillaguamish Tribe is a Co-Lead Entity of the Stillaguamish Watershed Council implementing many restoration projects. Here are a few of the Tribe's projects. The Stillaguamish Tribe, in conjunction with the Family Forest Fish Passage Program, replaced a culvert that was blocking fish passage on Cherokee Creek with a new bridge. As a result approximately 1 mile of new habitat is now accessible to all species of Pacific salmon and trout. The Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians sponsored a riparian restoration project on Jim Creek that involved stabilizing a bank with natural logs and slash, planting a buffer with native vegetation and installing fencing that keeps livestock out of the creek. As a result, the water in Jim Creek downstream will be clearer, cleaner, and more friendly for fish. The Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians purchased and planted nearly 60 acres on the South Fork Stillaguamish, across from the mouth of Jim Creek. The Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians, in conjunction with Forterra, purchased and restored about 35 acres on the North Fork Stillaguamish. Dilapidated structures were demolished and removed, and a riparian buffer was planted with native vegetation. The Tribe has plans to install engineered log jams at this site in the future. Thie Blue Slough reconnection project reconnected a 2500 feet of remnant side channel that has been disconnected from the mainstem North Fork Stillaguamish since the 1930s. The final phase of construction installed new corrugated metal culverts to connect the slough to the river at both ends allowing continuous flow through the channel and providing winter and summer rearing for chinook juveniles. In addition, a log jam complex was installed near the upstream culvert to provide backwater refuge for smolts entering the side channel. The Stillaguamish Tribe has partnered with the Snohomish County Department of Corrections to establish a Riparian Enhancement Inmate Crew. Minimum security inmates participate in this program, helping with a variety of restoration projects throughout our watershed. They control dangerous invasive weeds and plant thousands of native plants each year.
