DESCRIPTION
South Fork In-holding is an acquisition and restoration project that will acquire an 80 acre private residential and recreational in-holding in the heart of the most productive Chinook salmon spawning reach of the South Fork Nooksack River. Once the property is acquired we will restore the site to naturally functioning habitat. The acquisition property is the site of a private compound including a 60 year old cabin, three mobile homes, 30-40 derelict travel trailers that serve as temporary housing for visitors, numerous old or abandoned vehicles and a half century of accumulated tools, equipment, machinery, building supplies and debris.
