Near where Pilchuck Creek flows into the Stillaguamish River, the Stillaguamish Indian Tribe and the state are finishing a project to restore an important wetland habitat. The state Department of Transportation, the tribe and a work crew of minimum-security prisoners from the Snohomish County Jail are planting 60,000 native shrubs and other plants. The wetland area is on 40 acres of floodplain along I-5 north of the river.
