Description    


This project will install 221 key pieces of wood in 2.25 miles of core salmonid recovery stream habitat in Canon Creek. This project will increase stream habitat complexity, pool frequency, pool depth, high-flow refugia, and over-summer rearing habitat for salmonids in the watershed.

Project Benefit    


Large wood is known to create habitat complexity and enhance valuable habitat for both coho salmon and steelhead of all life stages (Dolloff et al. 2003, Cederholm et al. 1997, Quinn et al. 1996, Nickelson et al. 1992, Sedell et al. 1988, Bisson et al. 1987). The Canon Creek Stream Habitat Improvement Project proposes to use a combination of heavy equipment and hand labor to install up to 58 large wood structures with approximately 221 pieces of wood along 2.25 miles of stream.
