Abstract: The Tulalip Tribes partnered with the City of Snohomish and many others to remove the City of Snohomish Pilchuck River Diversion Dam and restore connectivity and fish passage to over 37 miles of upstream anadromous fish habitat.  The Pilchuck River is identified as a high priority watershed for the recovery of salmonids in the Snohomish River Watershed, the second largest and second highest producer of salmonids in the Puget Sound Region of Washington State.  Since its initial installation in 1912, the Pilchuck River Diversion Dam was consistently an impediment to upstream migration of listed fish species.  Full dam removal was completed in the summer of 2020 to restore unimpeded upstream fish passage for Chinook, steelhead, coho, bull trout, and many other species.

Our Speaker: Brett Shattuck is a Restoration Ecologist who has worked for over 12 years for the Tulalip Tribes primarily in the Snohomish and Stillaguamish River Basins from the headwaters to nearshore on various scales of restoration projects.  His current focus is protection and restoration of natural riverine and floodplain processes through land conservation and habitat connectivity.
