WHEN: September 19, 2012; 5pm

WHERE: Crescent Grange Hall

The Coastal Watershed Institute and partners are holding a community meeting to provide an update on the Twins nearshore restoration project, which includes extensive nearshore restoration and donation of a minimum of 200 acres of land to preserve the riparian zones of, and provide new valuable public access to, the west Twin River and central Strait shoreline. 

A critical migration corridor for three federally listed Chinook  salmon stocks along with coho, steelhead and cutthroat, the Twins nearshore area supports among the highest ecological diversity along the Strait of Juan de Fuca.  The area is very popular for surfing, crabbing, smelting, and fossil hunting. Come join us for a conversation on the project and how you can help!

We’ll be holding a site visit earlier in the day for elected officials. The community meeting will be followed by the grange community potluck-all are welcome!

Event sponsored by:   Coastal Watershed Institute with partners North Olympic Land Trust, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, Clallam Marine Resources Committee, the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe, Surfrider Foundation, Lafarge Corporation, WRIA 19 citizens, and other citizen groups.
