Our Commitment to
Restoring the Future
At the Northwest Straits Foundation, we’re Restoring the Future. One beach, one acre, one project at a time for a healthy and vibrant Salish Sea.
We work with a multitude of partners including tribes, nonprofit organizations, federal and state agencies, the Northwest Straits Commission and seven Marine Resources Committees (MRC) representing Clallam, Island, Jefferson, San Juan, Skagit, Snohomish and Whatcom counties.
The Northwest Straits Foundation leads marine restoration projects in those counties. We mobilize local support and volunteers, work with the MRCs, and fundraise to support our work. Our Foundation provides project planning and management, technical and scientific guidance, and field support.
We serve a diverse population based upon the rural reach of our work, from socially and economically diverse rural communities to tribal coastal areas, and urban cities such as Bellingham and Everett.
Our marine restoration work serves everyone because the marine environment is a public resource. Thanks for joining us to Restore the Future!
