DESCRIPTION:
The Regional Fisheries Enhancement Groups (RFEGs) are a statewide network of 14 non-profit organizations that engage their communities, citizen volunteers, and landowners to enhance and restore salmon and steelhead populations in their local watersheds. In addition to base funding received from a combination of state and federal dollars, RFEGs also leverage support through volunteerism, donations, and grant funding to complete salmon enhancement projects ranging from large- scale construction to community education and citizen science.
