In fall and winter 2020, three of the state Department of Ecology Washington Conservation Corps (WCC) field crews assisted the Thurston Conservation District on a large-scale restoration project along the Skookumchuck River.
The restoration project is one of five sponsored by Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife as part of the Aquatic Species Restoration Plan (ASRP).
ASRP projects come out of the Chehalis Basin Strategy, a comprehensive plan to restore the Chehalis River Basin for salmon and other aquatic species and reduce flood-related damage to basin communities. WCC AmeriCorps members have engaged in learning opportunities while contributing to a critical piece of restoration along the Skookumchuck river — planting.
