Commitment to tribal partners restores Shoalwater Bay Dune, protects Shaolwater Bay Tribe
A panoramic view of Willapa Bay, one of the largest estuarine systems on the Pacific Ocean coast of Washington State. The bay is approximately 28 miles north of the mouth of the Columbia River and 12 miles south of the entrance to Grays Harbor. Recent storms eroded the northern section of the protective barrier dune, which affects the safety of the Shoalwater Bay Tribe and increases flooding risk to millions of dollars of infrastructure in the area.
