Chimacum Creek - The land is bisected by Chimacum Creek. A once, meandering and now ditched and barron of riparian habitat. We hope to reestablish some of the creek's original path through the land. This is a multi-year and multi-agency endeavor, which we hope will greatly improve coho salmon rearing habitat along Chimacum Creek.
Cedar and Maple Forest - Mozaic was once home to large towering cedars and robust big leaf maple. Those trees were gone upon the forming of The Mozaic Project. The new forest is growing and the new stands will be managed as a resource for the local community.
