2017 Annual Report
Small Habitat Restoration Program
In 2017 the Small Habitat Restoration Program (SHRP) constructed and maintained 52 habitat projects to enhance and restore streams, wetlands, and riparian buffers throughout King County. SHRP staff worked with eight private property owners to enhance fish and wildlife habitat on their property.
- 19 new construction and phased planting projects
- 33 projects maintained and monitored
- 16,603 native trees, shrubs and non-woody plants installed
- 5,941 lineal feet of riparian buffer enhanced or restored
- 14.4 acres of riparian buffer enhanced or restored
- 250 linear feet of nearshore or marine shoreline restored
In 2017, grant funding for SHRP totaled over $10,000. Forging new partnerships and strengthening relationships with grant agencies and private landowners allows the program to maximize limited public funding to improve water quality and enhance habitat for fish, wildlife and future generations.
