Scientists and certified drone pilots with the State Department of Fish and Wildlife will fly a drone over the Smith Creek restoration project located near Willapa Bay in Pacific County on Monday.
The drone will provide baseline footage of the project area, which will be used to document changes in water channels and how tidal flows are returning to wetlands after the fish-passage project is completed. The project is designed to open up to 6.5 miles of high-quality habitat for fish, according to a Fish and Wildlife statement.
