South Prairie Creek Preserve Floodplain Restoration Project

The South Prairie Creek project will allow salmon easier upstream migration during higher flows, and increase cold groundwater to help summer low flow temperatures for juvenile and adult salmonids. It opened a historic side channel and then placed large engineered log jam at the opening to direct flows into the channel. Wood structures in the side channel will provide better habitat for both spawning and juvenile rearing for a variety of salmon species.
