(Mick Michelutti, John Moudy)
Clear Creek Hatchery focuses on one aspect of the relationship between the Nisqually Tribe and Fort Lewis. In 1991, the Tribe opened the hatchery on former reservation lands inside the military base, initiating the cooperation process between the Tribe and the Army. Funding for the hatchery came from dam operators compensating the tribe for their damage to the tribal fishery. The hatchery plays a key role in restoring salmon runs.
