Adam Fleming is a Fish Passage Biologist with the WA State Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW), where he has worked since 2018. As a WDFW biologist, much of Adam’s work is “boots on the ground” including tasks with the Chehalis Basin Strategy and The Aquatic Species Restoration Plan (ASRP). The ASRP prioritizes habitat restoration for the species that will benefit the most, particularly salmon and steelhead.
“Salmon have dissimilar needs of streams than our human-centric vision — which often include human access, cleared banks and beaches,” said Adam.
Adam encourages landowners to ask the big questions about their potential land use actions: how might your vision and goals for your property affect wildlife and everything else that utilizes the habitat — including your downstream and upstream neighbors? How might these actions affect animals that do not have a voice?
