Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe builds logjams for salmon habitat

In building logjams for salmon habitat in the Gray Wolf River, the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe took lessons from the river itself. By building structures out of logs with rootwads and using rocks to anchor them, they mimicked how a river naturally would create jams with logs and rocks that tumble downstream during high flows. The tribe attempts to restore river habitat in order to revitalize salmon populations.
