35th Annual Summer Lecture Series: Monitoring and Adaptive Management of the Nisqually Delta after Tidal Restoration

Join us August 10 at 7 p.m. In 2009, a major restoration project took place to remove the dikes and restore tidal influence to the Nisqually Delta. Since the restoration construction, subsequent monitoring has continued to provide new information to land managers, salmon recovery biologists and others who work to protect natural resources in the Puget Sound region. This talk by Nisqually Tribal Member Christopher Ellings will highlight lessons learned, including issues associated with sediment transport, prey availability, and other changes to the landscape and their effects on juvenile salmon.

COVID-19 Community Levels are at LOW, Masking is recommended in the Norm Dicks Visitor Center. Lectures are limited to 50 attendees on a first come, first served basis. A special thank you to Friends of the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge Complex for hosting the Summer Lecture Series!
