We have a major milestone to share! The Restore the Shore team has received government approval to start preparing a section of the berm for modification. This means that we are one step closer to making the estuary a safer and healthier place for salmon, birds, bears and all the other wildlife that depend on it. A road closure will begin soon to ensure the site is kept safe. Thank you to our amazing community for helping us reach this important step!
