A River Reborn: Restoring Salmon Habitat Along the Duwamish River





May 28, 2014

Just south of Seattle, the Boeing Corporation has created the largest habitat restoration project on the Lower Duwamish River. Boeing worked with NOAA and our partners under a Natural Resource Damage Assessment to restore habitat harmed by historical industrial activities.

The restoration included reshaping the shoreline and adding 170,000 native plants and large woody debris, which provide areas where young salmon can seek refuge from predators in the river. In order to create a resting area for migrating salmon, two acres of wetlands were also constructed. Learn about the restoration techniques used and how they will benefit the communities, fish, and wildlife of the Duwamish River.
