Mike Larrabee, N. Cascades National Park: Glaciers of the North Cascades


About one-third of all the glaciers in the lower 48 states are in the North Cascades National Park. These 312 glaciers are a critical part of the ecosystem: they influence soil development, vegetation distribution, flooding, and are dramatic indicators of climate change. They are also central to our region's hydroelectric industry and efforts to sustain endangered salmon and trout.Perhaps most importantly, glaciers provide cold, fresh water during droughts,periods of low streamflow and high stream temperatures.


The Skagit River watershed is very important for Puget Sound chinook salmon recovery! The recently completed Skagit River delta habitat restoration project provides benefits to chinook salmon and teaches us about challenges associated with implementing large-scale restoration projects. Meeting recovery goals for the Skagt River and delta is an ongoing process, and WDFW is working with the local community through the Farm, Fish, and Flood Initiative to advance recovery efforts.


Free admission. Donations appreciated.
