Established in 1999 through the congressionally authorized Northwest Straits Marine Conservation Initiative, the Skagit Marine Resources Committee (MRC) is a forum of citizens representing various interest groups who are appointed by County officials as part of a grassroots effort to address local threats to the marine environment. Recent projects carried out by the Skagit MRC include nearshore habitat restoration, native shellfish restoration, reducing stormwater pollution runoff, and providing outreach and education to local communities including Salish Sea Stewards volunteer training, Kids on the Beach programs, and Fidalgo Bay Day.
