Description    


Pre-acquisition and acquisition activities were conducted to secure and protect salmonid habitat to benefit re-introduced chinook and coho salmon and threatened summer steelhead. A purchase agreement was signed on April 20th, 2006 for a property located on Meacham Creek. Final approval from the USFWS was given on May 12th, 2006.

Project Benefit    


Re-introduced chinook and coho salmon, and Threatened summer steelhead will be benefited through protection of habitat from development and resource extractive impacts.

      Monitoring text (from Phase I)
      Fish population surveys are conducted every three years in the Umatilla Basin by the CTUIR Fisheries Natural Production Monitoring and Evaluation (NPME) program. The NPME program is funded by the Northwest Power Planning Council's Fish and Wildlife Mitigation Program. Surveys characterize fish diversity, distribution, abundance, and length frequency. Methods include electro-fishing stream habitat units (pools, glides, and riffles) and counting Threatened summer steelhead, and re-introduced chinook and coho salmon redds three times throughout the specie's respective spawning period. Riparian and aquatic habitat monitoring is implemented to document effectiveness of restoration actions within protected areas.
