Kus-kus-sum Supports the Salish Sea – Unpave Paradise

Project Watershed's Kus-kus-sum project is important for supporting the broader Salish Sea Ecosystem. The project will restore habitat for fish and wildlife, attenuate flooding, and create habitat connectivity to adjacent conservation lands in the estuary. Kus-kus-sum provides habitat for mobile species, such as salmon, that utilize the broader Salish Sea ecosystem in their lives.

We have $720,000 left to raise to purchase the Kus-kus-sum property and an Estuary Angel matching donations.
