Flexi Baffle Installation in Washington State

The Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association (NSEA) is a community-based, non-profit organization focused on reversing the trend of declining salmon runs in Whatcom County in Washington State. The NSEA works to enhance river and riparian habitat to support salmon recovery. They also work to educate people of all ages on how to provide Pacific salmon and steelhead with the best chance at survival.

We were contacted by the NSEA to develop a Flexi Baffle installation in a large box culvert on Terrell Creek, a tributary to Birch Bay on the Northern Puget Sound. The purpose of the project was to improve passage conditions for Pacific salmon migrating to their spawning grounds. This video documents the installation of the Flexi Baffles by NSEA staff.
