Volunteers set out native plants on new beach on Elwha – PDN

The last segment of a fish-blocking dam came down four years ago, but Elwha River restoration work continues. Whale Scout volunteers and Northwest Indian College students — most from the Port Gamble S’Klallam and Suquamish tribes — planted 800 native plants on the east side of the mouth of the Elwha River on Jan. 27. The planting was hosted by the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe on newly created beach formed when decades of sediment were released after the removal of two Elwha River dams in a $324 million project.
