County Efforts

Fish Ladder

A fish ladder makes the going easier for salmon.

In response to the listings of threatened fish, Clark County has implemented an Endangered Species Program to address ESA requirements and develop a comprehensive salmon recovery strategy. The strategy involves cooperation among numerous groups, ranging from federal, state, and local governments to citizen groups, Native American groups, the business community, environmentalists, and other organizations working together. The program staff, which includes one full-time employee and one part-time employee, is developing a response to the 4(d) rule, working with an advisory committee to develop a salmon recovery plan, and informing the public about ESA and salmon recovery issues that affect them.

Vision: A health environment supporting healthy communities.

Mission: Working with citizens and governments to protect and recover threatened and endangered native species through policy, education and conservation.
