Northwest Straits Foundation and Initiative: A Community Approach to Restoration and Protection of the Salish Sea” with Lisa Kaufman of NW Straits Foundation

Lisa Kaufman is the Director of Programs for NW Straits Foundation based in Bellingham. She manages nearshore habitat restoration project development, implementation, and supervision for the Foundation and its projects partners, including the Marine Resources Committees. She collaborates with project partners on all phases of the projects including feasibility, design, permitting, construction, monitoring, and oversight of work completed by contractors and partner organizations. Lisa also leads the Shore Friendly landowner outreach and incentive program to prevent and reduce the impacts of shoreline armoring.
