Habitat Restoration Projects

Restoration site

The City of Bellingham's Environmental Resources Division has completed numerous habitat restoration projects.  Much of the work is done by Washington Conservation Corps crews sponsored by the City. Typically projects focus on riparian (stream bank) and in-stream habitat enhancement.

Riparian Restoration Projects

Riparian restoration projects focus on removal of non-native invasive species and re-establishment of native trees and shrubs along stream banks to provide shade, nutrients, large woody debris (LWD) and wildlife habitat.

In-Stream Restoration Projects

In-stream habitat enhancement projects improve and restore stream channels to provide physical conditions preferred by native fish species using large woody debris (LWD), reconfiguring channel patterns and other techniques.
