Title: Pacific Northwest Salmon Center

Project: Pacific Northwest Salmon Center, Belfair, WA

Firm: Bruce Dees & Associates

Summary: Rehabilitation of salmon-bearing waters is a vital component to the recovery of Wild Salmon. Saving rivers and habitat that support Wild Salmon directly supports the health of regional ecosystems. South Hood Canal, where the site is located, is suffering from low oxygen content that threatens Wild Salmon populations. The plan for the Pacific Northwest Salmon Center will guide the development for a facility that showcases the methods necessary to support and sustain healthy Salmon habitat through a diverse group of partners including the Hood Canal Salmon Enhancement Group, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW), National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, Washington Department of Transportation, Evergreen State College, Boy’s and Girl’s Club, Olympic College, North Mason School District, and members of the Belfair community.
