Landowner Spotlight: The Bryan Family

The Bryan Family

Bruce and Linda Bryan are watershed stewards doing their part to protect habitat along a tributary of Terrell Creek.

The Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP) helped them transform their unmanaged 10-acre parcel,overgrown with alder trees and blackberries, into a diverse wetland and forest complex protecting and restoring salmon habitat.

Additionally, the Bryans are working with Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association and BBWARM to remove a fish passage barrier on their property this fall that will allow salmon to access nearly a mile of upstream habitat, including two forested ponds ideal for summer rearing.
