Description    


Wilcox Enterprises, heavy equipment subcontractor, and California Conservation Corps (CCC) installed 25 large wood features within approximately 2,000 feet (0.38 miles) of Redwood Creek, consisting of 62 pieces of large wood. Heavy equipment installed logs and dug trenches for riparian willow planting. CCC anchored structures and assisted with willow planting and mulching disturbed areas with rice straw. ERWIG staff assisted with the riparian planting of 15 native plants.

Project Benefit    


These structures will enhance instream habitat through increased shelter and channel complexity, deepened pools, and gravel sorting. Bank stabilization and riparian improvement will completed through bioengineering, planting and strategic armoring of currently failing or susceptible bank material.
