Jamestown S'Klallam tribe and students spearhead Dungeness floodplain restoration study

Peninsula Daily News

Jamestown S'Klallam tribe scientists have teamed up with Western Washington University's Huxley College on the Peninsulas as part of a Dungeness River floodplain restoration effort.

“The big question is to plant or not to plant,” said Jenise Bauman, the college's assistant professor of environmental science.

To help determine whether planting and/or seeding native shrub and tree species in an area like Railroad Bridge Park where there's “a lot of seed source” is beneficial, Huxley students from Peninsula College and Olympic College are working with the tribe's habitat biologists to study different restoration approaches and their outcomes.
