The Sportsmen’s National Land Trust will use this grant to buy 80 acres and begin restoration of degraded shoreline and wetlands that sustain Skidmore Slough near South Bend. The land trust will remove blackberries and replant the area with native plants. The overall goal of the project is to restore degraded water quality and salmon access to about 3 miles of rearing channels in the Willapa River and to remove and replace structures that block salmon migration. The Sportsmen’s National Land Trust will match this grant with $81,215 in donated labor and federal and state grants.
