Restoration project aims to restore critical salmon habitat

PORT LUDLOW, Wash. (AP) — A 32-acre area at Point No Point will undergo a habitat restoration led by the Mid Sound Fisheries Enhancement Group that aims to restore critical salmon habitat. The nonprofit was created by the Legislature and partners with salmon restoration groups. It’s working with the state Department of Fish and Wildlife, Kitsap County Parks and the Hansville community on a project to reconnect the Point No Point marsh to Puget Sound. Mid Sound has reached out to various groups to get their input. Once completed, the area should drain better because backed-up channels will be unclogged and a two-way system will be created.
