Quileute Tribe Restoring Creeks For Fish

FORKS (Sept. 5, 2001) – Two nameless tributaries of the Shuwah River northeast of Forks will once again be hospitable for fish following the completion of a habitat restoration project by the Quileute Tribe.

A crew of five tribal members is performing the physically demanding task of cutting and clearing wood and debris blocking the flow of the two tributaries that has thwarted traditional fish use of the streams. The project is being funded by a $64,000 Jobs In the Woods grant.
