Description    


The specific objective of the Project is to improve the quality and quantity of spawning and rearing habitat for coho salmon in Albion River by installing large wood features. Approximately 19 instream features will be constructed within a 3,660 foot section of Albion River, consisting of 62 pieces of large wood.

Project Benefit    


The addition of these structures will enhance spawning and rearing habitats by providing cover, increasing pool depth, frequency and complexity, sorting and collecting spawning gravels, and by providing velocity refuge during peak winter flows for juvenile salmonids and migrating adult salmonids.
