Cowling Creek Forest Preserve
Research & Education
Cowling Creek Center - the home of the Suquamish Tribe's salmon recovery research, education & outreach program - is dedicated to combining science & stewardship to conserve and restore Pacific salmon & steelhead populations and their habitats.
It is the mission of the Suquamish Fisheries Department to preserve, protect and enhance treaty reserved resources within the Tribal usual and accustomed grounds and stations for subsistence, cultural and commercial benefits for present and future generations of Suquamish Tribal Members.
Fundamental principle: The recovery of salmon and their habitat requires good science,
wise land use policies and practices, and the full engagement and energy of local watershed residents.
