The Habitat Work Schedule (HWS) is a project mapping and tracking database for Washington State’s Salmon Recovery Lead Entities and their partners. The HWS system brings together Lead Entity habitat projects in one place. It enables natural resource professionals, project funders, and the public to follow past, current, and proposed projects from concept through implementation and then, once complete, into the monitoring phases. This leaves a legacy of local and statewide salmon recovery efforts and creates a better coordinated salmon recovery effort.
Currently our Skagit HWS database of salmon projects primarily contains completed, active, and planned activities in the Skagit River supporting the recovery of ESA-listed Chinook salmon, and the database is being developed to plan and track the contribution of restoration projects to the recovery goals for Chinook. We are also working to expand the database to include projects in the Samish basin, projects benefiting other species, and projects completed before the 2005 Skagit Chinook Recovery Plan.
Skagit projects can be accessed by clicking here », and the statewide HWS database can be accessed here ». One can search projects by name, region, Lead Entity, project category, or status. Alternately, one can browse a list of projects, a hierarchy of project folders or mapped project locations. Please visit us often as we are adding and updating information, or contact our staff or project sponsors for more information.
