West March's Point Beach Enhancement

The West March’s Point Beach Nourishment Project was a partnership with the Skagit River System Cooperative in 2010. Skagit Restoration Initiative funds paid for 1,850 tons of sand and gravel to be placed in selected locations at West March’s Point as part of a larger project designed to restore sediment transport beach processes and enhance forage fish spawning habitat in the Fidalgo Bay nearshore. The project was completed with the cooperation of Tesoro, who owns the property.

Skagit Restoration Initiative (SRI) funding is administered in a partnership between the Skagit Marine Resources Committee and the Northwest Straits Foundation. SRI funds are designated for projects that restore the shoreline, nearshore, or marine resources of Fidalgo Bay or Padilla Bay.
