The Nisqually River Council (NRC) is preparing a plan for the development and management of a water trail on the main stem Nisqually River from below LaGrande Dam to the Nisqually delta. American Whitewater is a partner in this effort. Technical planning assistance is being provided to the NRC on this project from the ‘Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance’ (RTCA) program of the National Park Service. The goal is to facilitate a inclusive collaborative planning process to develop safe and appropriate public access points to the river for launching and taking out small human powered boats such as rafts, canoes, kayaks and inner tubes.
To help with the planning process, we would like to hear from you! Do you raft, hike, bike or picnic on or near the Nisqually River? Do you value the watershed for a particular reason? Your thoughts will help us decide the best options for the water trail!
Please consider taking our survey. It will take about 10 minutes to complete, and is open through December 4. Anyone--rafter or not--is welcome to take the survey, so please share the link with anyone who may be interested!
You are invited to join us to hear more about the Nisqually River access and water trail and share your ideas at the Open House on Thursday, November 5th, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at Yelm Middle School at 402 W Yelm Ave, Yelm, WA.  Come by anytime between 6:00 and 8:00 pm, a presentation will given at 6:15 pm.
