Description    


Wahkiakum Conservation District proposes to implement a culvert barrier replacement on county road and a salmon recovery project on three non industrial private ownerships (Spillman, Vegvary, and Hone) encompassing 688 feet of West Valley Skamokawa Creek and 2000 feet of Cadman Creek in the Skamokawa Creek watershed. The project addresses all priority restoration needs, priority life stages, and limiting factors for Coho. The project will replace a culvert barrier, install wood-based instream structure, and restore riparian function along 3,000 feet of Cadman Creek. Wood structures will focus on increasing habitat diversity and quantity. Emphasis will be placed on both rearing habitat and spawning habitat. Practices thus far are considered short-term salmon recovery practices. The project proposes to establish a functioning forest riparian buffer along West Valley and Cadman Creeks.

Project Benefit    


Implement a culvert barrier replacement, install wood-based instream structure, and restore riparian function. Emphasis on rearing and spawning habitat for coho.
