Chinook River WDFW Conservation and Restoration

Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife began developing a restoration concept for this area in 1997. In 2001, the Columbia Land Trust acquired a large parcel of land, which was transferred to WDFW to become the Chinook unit of the St Johns Wildlife Area. Partial restoration including retrofit of internal tidegates was undertaken from 2005 - 2007. New restoration planning and implementation is being undertaken from 2011 - 2014, including an additional acquisition to the north (Mattson property).
