The Council’s Restorative Flood Response project gathered 30 Sandy basin community members from flood-impacted neighborhoods to seek multi-landowner approaches that improve habitat while reducing risk for homeowners and infrastructure. Experts shared ideas about natural forces at work in the dynamic, glacially fed Sandy, what fish need, and protective riverbank actions that are fish friendly. Participants discussed problems they face, and considered potential steps groups of residents could take together.
