Give back to the Nisqually Watershed for the holidays!

10 years after removal of levees at the Billy Frank Jr. Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge, the Nisqually Delta is a functioning tidal estuary being studied for its geologic and biological benefits

2019 was a busy year in the Nisqually Watershed, celebrating milestones and looking ahead to critical needs for the future. This summer, we published a comprehensive report on the Nisqually Watershed Stewardship Plan, documenting the environmental, social, and economic health of our watershed. The report makes two things clear. First, thanks to the strength of our community, the Nisqually Watershed is uniquely positioned as a leader in collaborative conservation, with remarkable successes in environmental restoration, education, and inclusive planning that offer models for other regions. Second, as we face the challenges of growing population, a changing climate, and endangered species on the brink, we need your support more than ever to sustain and protect the Nisqually River for future generations.
