Description    


The specific objective of this project is to improve the quality and quantity of spawning and rearing habitat for Coho Salmon by installing large wood in three separate streams in the NF Noyo River Watershed. This project will result in a total of 124 large wood features consisting of 340 pieces of wood over 11,780 feet (2.23 miles) of stream, exceeding the ?very good? category in all three streams for large wood frequency, as outlined in federal Coho recovery plans. The total large wood count will increase from an existing 13 pieces (22.8/mile), to 95 (167.2/mile) on Dewarren Creek, 36 (46.3/mile) to 148 (190.36/mile) on MFNF Noyo River, and 17 (19.2/mile) to 163 pieces (184.09/mile) on Gulch Seven. The addition of appropriately sized wood to meet target criteria will enhance the quality, quantity, and complexity of spawning and rearing habitat for salmonids.

Project Benefit    


Adding complex large wood features improves geomorphic function by capturing spawning gravels, improving winter and summer instream refugia, backflooding off-channel habitat and improving access to floodplains.
