Description    


Using 64 pieces of large wood (LW), 18 features were constructed along a 0.49-mile reach of Moody Creek. Of the 64 pieces of LW, 41 were key pieces. Eleven of the features were constructed using heavy equipment, seven features were constructed by directly felling timber into the channel, and all features were adjusted and/or anchored by California Conservation Corps crews. Planting of 200 redwood seedlings occurred along access routes and in corridors that were disturbed by heavy equipment work.

Project Benefit    


This project will add 16 LWD structures, containing 56 pieces of LWD, 41 of which will be key pieces, over 0.5 miles of Moody Creek. This will bring the key piece concentration in this project reach to 6.2 per 100 meters, which brings Moody Creek into the target range of >3 key pieces per 100 meters, rated as very good, as outlined in the SONCC Coho Recovery Plan. The LWD placed in Moody Creek will provide complex shelter and will deepen existing pools.
