Upper Columbia Salmon Recovery Board
The Upper Columbia Salmon Recovery Board (UCSRB – www.ucsrb.org) is a nonprofit organization that coordinates the implementation of the Upper Columbia Spring Chinook Salmon and Steelhead Recovery Plan. The UCSRB facilitates regional collaboration to understand and address the complexities that our communities face in the wake of three federally-listed salmonids. The UCSRB also engages in a conversation on the role of a healthy forest in creating healthy rivers and healthy communities. Facilitating active conversations in these forums, the UCSRB informs organizations, governments, tribes, industry, and other interests of our collective progress. In 2012, the UCSRB convened the North Central Washington Forest Health Collaborative to expand regional efforts to implement a ridgetop to rivers approach to salmon recovery. UCSRB Board members consist of a Commissioner from each Chelan, Douglas, and Okanogan Counties, and representatives from both the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation and the Yakama Nation.
