Ecological restoration activities include removing invasive weeds, planting native species, and mulching. North Wind’s Weir’s West Bank is .6 acre located at the zone of salt and freshwater mixing that is especially important to threatened salmon in the Green/Duwamish River watershed. Young salmon coming from higher in the Green/Duwamish River will feed, hide from predators and high river flows, and get used to salt water in the shallow waters of the project. Trees, shrubs and marsh plants will host insects that feed the young fish as they prepare for their lives in salt water.
