DESCRIPTION
The Nooksack Tribe will restore instream habitat in the North Fork Nooksack River, RM 48.0 – 48.2, near Kendall, Whatcom County. The goal is to address North/Middle Fork Nooksack chinook limiting factors of high channel instability and low habitat diversity. Specifically, this project will construct 11 log jams in a 0.2-mile river segment, to advance the second of six phases of restoration planned in the broader Farmhouse reach (RM 46.4-49). The reach is also just upstream from the Kendall hatchery, site of the
North Fork/Middle Fork Nooksack early chinook population rebuilding program, and the reach is heavily used, increasing certainty of benefit.
