Tyonek Tribal Conservation District

The Tyonek Tribal Conservation District is continuing its work to restore salmon habitat on the western side of Cook Inlet. The conservation minded nonprofit has been working to restore several miles of salmon habitat in the Tyonek area for about six years.

The conservation district received a $600,000 grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration this month.  Executive Director Christy Cincotta said that funding will help pay for the replacement of two culverts and one road reroute, which were barriers for several species of wild salmon.
