Habitat Enhancement in the Salmon Creek Estuary

Improving Habitat for Salmonid Populations in Salmon Creek Estuary

The purpose of the Salmon Creek Estuary Habitat Structures Project is to improve habitat in the lower Salmon Creek estuary through installation of large wood structures and floating willow rafts. The instream habitat structures will provide refuge areas for salmonids and other aquatic species during high flows and cover from predation during low flow periods.

This project was installed in the spring of 2011. Read our report Habitat Enhancement in The Salmon Creek Estuary (1.5 MB) to learn more about the project background, goals, process and lessons learned.
