About Us

The Puget Sound Nearshore Ecosystem Restoration Project (PSNERP) is a collaborative effort between government agencies, universities, tribes, and environmental organizations. PSNERP is conducting a General Investigation study led by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife. This study is designed to improve our understanding of changes to nearshore ecosystems, significant ecosystem problems, and potential solutions to those problems.

Puget Sound Shoreline

Ultimately, PSNERP will develop a strategic approach to guide decision making and design and implement actions that will protect and restore Puget Sound’s shorelines.  Healthy shorelines benefit the wildlife, fish, and plants that depend on the nearshore, resulting in continued benefit to humans by ensuring sustained use of our shorelines and resources for economic and human health and well-being.
