SRF Board grant funding and the Nisqually estuary

Chris Dunagan over at Watching Our Water Ways notes the generous nature of the last Salmon Recovery Funding Board grant round:

This round of SRF Board funding was interesting in another way. Five different watershed groups in Puget Sound voluntarily pooled a portion of their grant money to further a 700-acre restoration in the Nisqually River and delta. Everyone recognized the value of this $10-million project, which will increase the amount of estuarine habitat in South Puget Sound by 46 percent. This collaboration on a single project has generated a lot of good will among the watershed groups and, I believe, made them feel more like a family.

Here’s a press release on the same topic.
