Wasson Creek Watershed Ridgetop-to-Estuary Restoration Project

Recipient: Oregon Department of State Lands

Federal Funding: $3,535,900

Summary: This project will restore the ecological health of and cultural connections with the Wasson Creek watershed in the South Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve, resulting in more resilient wetlands, streams, tidal forested swamps, and upland forest habitats. These restored systems will provide habitat for ecologically and culturally important fish species, have significant blue carbon storage benefits, support sustainable harvesting for Indigenous cultural practices, and provide a seed source for local restoration projects.
