Hoh River Resiliency Plan

The Middle Hoh River Resiliency Plan is “living” document intended to enhance management of the Middle Hoh River valley to the benefit of people and natural resources. Beginning in early 2020, the resiliency planning process established a structure that has brought together the people who live, work and manage resources within the river valley. It produced the plan itself, an action plan, maps, and discussion level designs for possible restoration actions. These documents are linked below as well as meeting agendas and summaries. 

The primary goal of this plan is to produce a collective voice for the river and floodplain based on a shared scientific foundation. Its objectives are to develop, prioritize and implement prioritized actions that are mutually beneficial to the community and wildlife as articulated in the Middle Hoh River Action Plan. 

This Action Plan sets out a detailed strategy for improving community and ecosystem resiliency in the Middle Hoh River over the next 80+ years. Due to the size and characteristics of the river itself, the scale and intensity of human alteration, as well as the need to act quickly to restore salmon habitat and adapt to climate change impacts, the plans necessarily describe an assertive path to restoration. It has been collaboratively developed with the local community, property owners and agencies responsible for land management and infrastructure. 

Progress towards implementation of the plan is contingent upon future grant funding and landowner willingness. Let's keep the conversations going! Please send your ideas and comments to Tami Pokorny at tpokorny@co.jefferson.wa.us or call 360-379-4498.
