Request for Proposals: Eelgrass Restoration Synthesis Report

The Pacific Marine and Estuarine Fish Habitat Partnership is partnering with the Friends of South Slough Reserve to develop a synthesis of eelgrass restoration techniques along the U.S. West Coast to inform the restoration community, promote successful restoration of eelgrass, and provide greater clarity regarding the conditions where mitigation would (and conversely would not) be an appropriate intervention as opposed to other management strategies. This Request for Proposals seeks to identify a contractor to complete this synthesis and report. The work will include compiling and synthesizing restoration and mitigation techniques, successes, and failures along the U.S. West Coast through literature reviews and interviews with restoration practitioners and researchers.

Salmon Recovery Funding Board

The Salmon Recovery Funding Board provides funding for elements necessary to achieve
overall salmon recovery, including habitat projects and activities that result in sustainable
and measurable benefits for salmon and other fish species. The SRFB funds riparian, freshwater, estuarine, nearshore, saltwater, and upland projects that protect existing, high quality habitats for salmon. It also funds projects to restore degraded habitat in order to increase overall habitat health and biological productivity of the fish.

Project proposals should address restoration priorities identified in Lead Entity habitat restoration strategies. The grant program is administered by the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office. Eligible applicants are cities, counties, federally recognized Indian tribes, non-profit organizations, private landowners if the proposed project is on their land, regional fisheries enhancement groups, special purpose districts, and state agencies with a local eligible partner.

If you administer a grant or other funding source that would support salmon recovery in the Washington coast region, we would love to know about it. Please contact Mara Zimmerman to share your information on our website.
