Washington Coast Sustainable Salmon Foundation

Protect the Best. Restore the Rest.

aka Coast Salmon Foundation   |   Aberdeen, WA   |  http://www.coastsalmonpartnership.org

Mission

The Coast Salmon Foundation secures diverse public and private funds to empower durable salmon recovery outcomes in watersheds throughout the Washington Coast Region. We work to keep our salmon runs, our livelihoods, and the way of life that depends on them healthy in some of the last best habitats for salmon in Washington state. We serve a network of restoration partners who represent Tribes, state agencies, watershed groups, local governments, and conservation organizations that implement habitat protection and restoration from start to finish. We equip these partners with the resources they need for on-the-ground work, including administrative and technical support, fundraising, and outreach.
