Skykomish-Snohomish Rivers Recreation Coalition

About the Coalition:

The Skykomish – Snohomish Rivers stretch 84 miles from Washington’s Cascade Mountains to the urban shores of Puget Sound on the Salish Sea in Everett and Marysville. The rivers share habitat, geography, recreation and cultural heritage with the 11 distinct cities and towns.

No official river recreation management plan exists for these rivers. In 2015 an ad hoc coalition of public land management agencies, federally recognized tribes, municipalities, residents, recreation and conservation organizations and local businesses formed to share information, expertise, best river recreational management practices for public access and concerns for salmon and habitat recovery. The coalition is facilitated by Snohomish County Parks, Recreation and Tourism as a sustainable tourism initiative.
