2015 by the Numbers The Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association is a community-based nonprofit organization dedicated to restoring sustainable wild salmon runs in Whatcom County. Looking Back Over 25 Years In the late 1980s, a group of concerned volunteers gathered and agreed to work together to try to reverse the trend of salmon decline in Whatcom County. In 1991, NSEA officially incorporated as a nonprofit organization, and became one of 14 Regional Fisheries Enhancement Groups in Washington State. Growth in the 1990s brought NSEA from a fledgling volunteer-run organization to the staff -supported organization that we are today. We have remained focused on engaging our community in the process of salmon recovery in Whatcom County throughout the past 25 years. Though we are trying to work ourselves out of a job, we are here for the long term to ensure that salmon recovery is successful.

Letter From the Director Dear Friends, I believe that every one of us should be able to see salmon in our local creeks; NSEA works for that right. We rely on salmon for food, recreation, jobs, cultural identity and social tradition; it’s an NSEA goal to make sure we always can. These iconic fish are both symbolic of what we love, and a barometer of the health of Whatcom County. This year, NSEA is thrilled to celebrate its 25th anniversary. Since our inception, we have worked hard to help salmon and people thrive, and ensure that our natural landscape is healthy. I am awed when I go to one of our older restoration sites and see a creek that was once choked with invasive grass transformed into a flourishing ecosystem where salmon and other wildlife thrive. I also appreciate receiving enthusiastic calls from people to let us know that they just saw a salmon swimming in a creek for the first time in 10, 20 or in some cases more than 50 years. In 2015, we continued to educate and engage our community and completed restoration projects in local streams. In addition, with the generosity of tremendously supportive donors, NSEA purchased property in July of 2015 for a permanent base-of-operations! Since then, we have been working to make modifications to the property and buildings so it meets our current and projected needs. We plan to incorporate a community meeting room, an equipment shop, and a native plant demonstration garden to our facility. The end goal of these investments is to provide NSEA with a foundation from which to plan and work for the long term. When we look back, we are filled with gratitude for everyone in our community who has helped us accomplish so much in the past 25 years. Thank you. But our work is not done. We are also looking forward to ensure we are strategic and intentional so that we maximize the impact we can make to benefit salmon, our community, and the health of Whatcom County. I hope you will continue to help NSEA meet its mission; volunteer your time, support us financially, complete a restoration project at your home, plant a tree at a community work party or simply tell us what you think is important so that your voice is heard. We look forward to learning what matters to you and how we can work together to ensure the success of salmon recovery. With tremendous gratitude,

Rachel Vasak Executive Director

Community Work Party Program Our community work parties are a real way to directly improve salmon habitat. In addition, work parties are productive, fun, participatory and an informative way to get involved with on-the-ground restoration. Thousands of volunteers (this year 2,066) from all walks of life and all ages came together on Saturday mornings during the fall and spring planting seasons to transform the landscape so that it is healthier for salmon, other wildlife and people.

You’re getting dirty and it’s real and you are connecting with people in the community and you are accomplishing a lot in just a couple of hours so it’s definitely something I am going to continue.

Alyssa Voelker, NSEA Community Work Party Volunteer

On Make A Difference Day, NSEA partnered with the City of Bellingham and 267 volunteers to plant native trees and shrubs along the city’s Squalicum Creek Re-Route Project.

A private landowner hosted 71 people of all ages along Deer Creek behind the family’s home to plant the streambank with native trees and shrubs. 4

Education Spotlight The Students for Salmon Program is the heart and soul of NSEA’s education work. During this science based program, we provide a critical first connection to salmon habitat for students attending public, private, tribal and homeschool cooperative schools throughout Whatcom County. It’s a combination of classroom instruction and outdoor exploration where students get the chance to learn about salmon AND take action (with native plants, shovels and their own hands!) to build healthy habitat. Even more, we work diligently to secure funding to ensure that local youth have access to this high quality pro gram at no cost to schools or the parents of students.

Our students love studying aquatic insects during their Stream Exploration Field Trip!

Outdoor learning + Mud + Baby Trees = Happy Kids, Happy Salmon!

In 2015 we increased opportunities for students to take action to improve salmon habitat through our Restoration Field Trips.

Curriculum Adapts to Next Gen Science Standards in 2015! This past year NSEA staff and education committee members updated and released a newly revised and formatted Students for Salmon Curriculum that supports the Next Generation Science Standards. These standards are newly adopted by WA State and are set to be implemented in the 2016-2017 school year. NSEA’s curriculum revisions in 2015 will provide leadership and support to a growing community of educators committed to nurturing the next generation of environmental decision makers. We are excited to be part of this shift which recognizes the important role informal environmental education plays to link students with science and their environment. 5

Salmon Habitat Restoration Over Time Not looking good. 2002

Doing the work. 2003

Function improved. 2008

Functioning even better. 2016

Kendall Creek, a tributary of the North Fork Nooksack River, was choked with invasive Reed Canarygrass, which resulted in poor salmon habitat.

NSEA Crew members removed the invasive grass, replanted the streambank with native trees and shrubs, added spawning gravel for adult fish, and tree trunks with root wads to stabilize the banks and provide places for salmon to hide.

Kendall Creek six years after restoration work was completed: The water temperature has dropped, the invasive grass is nearly gone, the aquatic insect population has grown, and most importantly salmon are regularly seen in the creek.

Now fully wrapped in the shade of native vegetation with the large tree trunks and spawning gravel still in place, this section of Kendall Creek provides a prime example of what we expect our restoration efforts to achieve over time.

OVER TIME, THIS IS WHAT WE EXPECT AS A RESULT OF OUR RESTORATION WORK.

Salmon need cool water temperatures to thrive. Temperature decreases as trees grow and shade the water.

Plant diversity increases and plants mature in size. Natural reseeding occurs and more and more shade is provided.

Aquatic insect diversity and numbers increase providing the food that young salmon depend on when the yolk sack is exhausted.

Water clarity increases as more fine sediment is trapped by plant roots and LWD, improving water quality for salmon and aquatic insects.

Toward the end of 2015 generous donors provided the support necessary for the campaign to surpass the one million dollar milestone bringing the $1.2M goal into clear view. Following the successful purchase of the property (in July) our attention turned toward completing an important list of projects required by our Conditional Use Permit. The final phase, property customization to improve its effectiveness, is projected to be complete midway through 2016.
