Whidbey Restoration Project Makes a Difference, For Shore -Ear to Ground/WDNR

More good work restoring shoreline habitat. One of the primary benefits of this is to remove creosote chemicals from entering the nearshore habitat, where sand lance and herring live and reproduce. These  two species are critical to the the food chain of the Salish Sea.

Salmon, crabs, clams and shorebirds got a happier home recently as DNR’s Aquatic Restoration crews freed up beachhead on southeast shore of Whidbey Island. Partnering with the Whidbey Camano Land Trust, the restoration program removed 440 feet of creosote-treated bulkhead from the Glendale Beach and Waterman Shoreline Preserve north of Clinton. Removal of the bulkhead allows the beach to again move in the free, dynamic way it naturally does. (Ear to the Ground/WDNR)
