Cumberland Creek Is Home At Last!

Restoring more than 4,000 feet of salmon habitat, Cumberland Creek has been diverted into its historic channel in a joint effort by the Skagit Land Trust, the Army Corps of Engineers, Skagit River System Cooperative (SRSC), Skagit County, and Seattle City Light. The creek had been in its current channel for about 80 years because of the the South Skagit Highway. Skagit Land Trust Board Members, volunteers and staff have been advocating for the restoration of Cumberland Creek for several years and are very pleased to see the project’s completion. Watch a video of the exciting moment and read more about it here.
