Middle Fork Science Pub: Restoring the Staley Creek Floodplain
October 5, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Rivers and streams are dynamic environments that are constantly changing. Or at least they should be. For the last 50 years, lower Staley Creek was static – confined to constructed berms that kept it channelized and didn’t allow water to flow out onto the floodplain. Thanks to a grant from the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board and Western Native Trout Initiative, as well as funding from the US Forest Service, we were able to restore a one mile section of lower Staley to a more natural condition, creating diverse habitat that will benefit fish and wildlife species and increase water storage.
