Description    


The purpose of the Project is to improve instream habitat for salmonids in Anderson Creek. Anderson Creek supports populations of endangered Coho salmon. The Project is necessary because salmonid recovery plans recommend increasing stream habitat complexity in Anderson Creek by installing large wood (LW). Adding LW to Anderson Creek will enhance pools, increase gravel sorting, and provide increased habitat complexity. This project will be not only helping coho populations, but also Chinook and steelhead populations at all life stages by addressing rearing requirements for coho, Chinook, and steelhead. Following construction of LWD structures, Woodbenders will plant 400 trees and native shrubs. Approximately 300 Douglas firs and/or redwood will be planted along with approximately 100 native shrubs, including the following: evergreen huckleberry, thimbleberry, red elderberry, and cascara buckthorn.

Project Benefit    


The objective of this project is to supplement ongoing efforts to provide short and long term benefits to salmonids through the placement of 41

structures containing a total of 119 pieces of large wood in 1.9 miles of Anderson Creek. The placed wood will enhance pools, increase gravel sorting, create cover and provide increased habitat complexity for salmonids.
