Salmon Restoration and Resilience in a Changing Climate

How do we restore what has been degraded in the past AND provide resilience to future change? In March 2023, we released a reference guide to help answer this question. The guide includes:

  • Primary climate-driven impacts that threaten salmonid habitat,
  • A description of how salmonids will be affected,
  • Projected changes for coastal watersheds, and
  • Recommended habitat restoration and protection actions to mitigate and/or adapt to the changing climate

Read more and explore our interactive web map for current information on climate and restoration science and their applications for the Washington coast.

Maps & Tools

Maps are a helpful tool to visualize information. The Washington Coast Region uses web map applications to visualize information used in restoration planning such as culverts, fish distributions, monitoring locations, and climate change predictions. These maps combine publically available information to facilitate planning focused on specific topics or geographies. Click on a project below to learn more.
