Skagit River Delta History

The Skagit River Delta map

The Padilla Bay Center provided this probable map of the area of 10,000 years ago.

The Skagit River once entered Puget Sound at Padilla Bay, but sometime during the past thousands of years, its mouth shifted southward into Skagit Bay. Bayview Ridge to the southeast of Samish Island, was also once an island, like Samish Island, before delta marshes filled in this region.
