Description    


The Southeast Alaska Watershed Coalition (SAWC) and U.S. Forest Service (FS) are partnering to restore habitat for pink, chum, coho, and sockeye salmon and steelhead trout in Margaret Creek. This project will enhance both rearing and spawning habitat by constructing log jams and placing large woody debris in the channel, removing culverts, removing road fill blocking access to the floodplain, and performing riparian thinning.

Project Benefit    


This project will benefit four species of Pacific salmon in Margaret Creek by restoring access to the floodplain, restoring fish passage, and improving instream habitat until riparian trees grow large enough that they can naturally fall into the stream and create fish habitat.
