Learn about, then have your say on, a proposed habitat restoration project aimed at fish and wildlife on the river near Carnation.

The Wild Fish Conservancy, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW), King County and Ducks Unlimited will be at a meeting, 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27, at the Duvall firehouse, 5600 First Ave. N.E., Duvall, to talk about the effort.

Proposed for this summer on the Snoqualmie River in the Fish and Wildlife's Stillwater Unit near Carnation, the project involves removing as much as 2,000 feet of angular rock that is currently armoring the river bank, re-sloping the bank to a more natural slope, and planting native plants.

The purpose is to improve habitat for fish and wildlife in the area.

Recreational opportunities are not expected to be adversely impacted by the project.
