In 2003, the Methow Restoration Council (MRC) formed as an ad hoc group to improve coordination of our individual efforts to protect and restore native fish species and habitats in the Methow watershed.

Why here?

Historically, the Methow watershed supported abundant anadromous (ocean-going) fish populations, including spring Chinook and coho salmon, steelhead, and Pacific lamprey.  

What are we doing?

The MRC participants share a common goal to ensure that preservation and restoration actions are scientifically sound, effectively monitored, and will produce measurable benefits that support species recovery.

Where are we headed?

Participants at MRC work together to develop more coordinated projects that address habitat problems across larger sections of each river rather than at a specific work site.
