Home makeover for animals at the Stillaguamish River
May 11, 2012 -
STANWOOD, Wash. - The Nature Conservancy has started working on the removal of an old farm dike to restore 150 acres of estuary at the mouth of the Stillaguamish River.
Port Susan officials say the $4 million project will include rebuilding a new dike for flood protection, and should improve habitat for salmon, water birds and other animals that need the mix of salt and fresh water.
The original dike was build over 60 years ago, and may be breached in October.
