Money for Salmon in Fall City

I found this interesting press release about Federal Money coming to protect Puget Sound and saw that there is a project in Fall City.  I did not know that there was any proposed projects like this in Fall City so it caught my eye. 

Here is a quote from the EPA press release dated 4.29.09.

“SNOQUALMIE TRIBE PROPOSAL
Brief Description of Project: Traditional Ecological Knowledge Interpretive Trail and Riparian Restoration at Fall City Park – This project will restore 5.2 acres adjacent to the Snoqualmie River. The project will enhance ecological function of an area known to be critical salmon habitat, while beautifying it and maintaining its recreational value. An interpretive trail for community use will be created to improve understanding of traditional ecological knowledge used in this area before contact, including sustainable harvest of native plants used for food, medicine, housing, clothing and other daily uses.”

You can see the Press release here.

It will be interesting to see what the proposal is all about.
