The area can experience more than 240 inches of rainfall a year. Forests dominate the region, with the lower elevations of the river systems mostly in privately or government-owned commercial forestry. Three tribes own reservation lands with an extensive overlay of indigenous usual and accustomed hunting and fishing areas covering each watershed. THe relatively small remainder of land is in diverse rural residential, recreational, and agricultural use. There are several small urban centers with the city of Forks as the largest.
The primary goal of the Lead Entity is to maintain and improve ecosystem productivity and genetic diversity for all salmon species by protecting highly productive habitats and populations, and restoring impaired habitat and populations. To accomplish this goal, the Lead Entity uses the best available science to set priorities, incorporate socio-political factors in decision-making, and help provide direction and focus for the success of project sponsors.
