PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Snohomish County Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) and the Stillaguamish Tribe are partnering on a floodplain restoration project at Trafton. This project is connected to a larger effort by the Tribe to restore reach-scale river processes and salmon habitat on the lands they own at Trafton. The Whitehorse Trail, which runs adjacent to the project area, will also be protected the from future erosion and avulsion impacts.

  1. UPDATES/CURRENT STATUS
  2. PROJECT TIMELINE

DCNR and the Stillaguamish Tribe are partnering on a floodplain restoration project at Trafton.

 

The County and Tribe are in the early stages of this project, exploring options for restoration. The potential project footprints that are being considered range from working only on the Tribe’s property at Trafton to expanding the restoration into part of Trafton Trailhead Park. If the project includes a portion of Trafton Trailhead Park, that will add around 70 acres to the total restored floodplain area.    

 

Upcoming Public Meeting: 9/27 at 6 pm via zoom

This first public meeting will introduce the project goals and will be a chance for the County and Tribe to listen to thoughts from the community about the project.
