The Salmon Recovery Funding Board yesterday awarded $18 million in grants to organizations in the state to repair rivers, remove barriers blocking fish passage and replant riverbanks in an effort to recover salmon from the brink of extinction.
The grants, given annually, went to 91 projects in 29 of the state's 39 counties. In addition, the funding board approved Puget Sound projects, requesting $38 million, to be funded from the Puget Sound Acquisition and Restoration Fund. It awaits legislative approval next year, according to a press release from the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office.
