The Federally recognized Puget Sound Tribes and Tribal Consortia work with the Puget Sound Partnership (PSP) to restore and maintain the health of Puget Sound. These Tribes and the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission (NWIFC) provide input and guidance to the PSP through active involvement in the PSP’s Leadership Council, Ecosystem Coordination Board, and Salmon Recovery Council, as well as Tribal Caucus meetings and the Puget Nearshore Ecosystem Restoration Project. Both the PSP and NWIFC have been selected by the Environmental Protection Agency as Lead Organizations to coordinate participation in Puget Sound recovery and implement targeted strategies.
This site serves to provide information related to the interactions between the Federally recognized Puget Sound Tribes and Tribal Consortia and the PSP, including information and updates on the important Puget Sound Tribal restoration projects that are currently being implemented. Brief summaries of these restoration projects are listed below, by fiscal year. Additional information for specific restoration projects, including progress reports, is available under “Tribal Project Updates.”
