Salmon Coalition celebrates decade-long project – PDN


While I miss the old 3 Crabs Restaurant, the recovery of the estuary of the Dungeness is far more important. In addition to NOSC, we should be aware that the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe along with the Dungeness River Managment Team has been extremely important to project management and stakeholder buy in.

For a good overview of the restoration issues with the Dungeness River, you can also view the 15 minute film I made with the Jamestown S’Klallam, the DRMT and others back in 2013. It will give you a good overview of the entirety of the project, along with a number of the people responsible for it’s restoration.

The North Olympic Salmon Coalition honored 10 years of work and partnerships made along the way in its 3 Crabs nearshore and estuarine restoration project at a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the estuary off 3 Crabs Road earlier this month…. This restoration project is one of many NOSC has implemented in areas throughout the Olympic Peninsula. It was made possible by 29 stakeholders and supporters involved in the project.

  1. What am I not getting??? The restoration is a disaster..not bird friendly anymore..hardly any wetland for marsh birds..no water flow, no fish

    • Mary I don’t understand what you’re asking. It wasn’t enormously bird friendly to begin with with the three crabs restaurant there and of course there is a lot of years ahead as the river and estuary recovers. I would recommend looking up the specifics of what they were trying to achieve in the project to see if there’s anything there that helps you better understand it. If not, you might try going to a meeting of the Dungeness river management team and ask your question there.
