In-Stream Restoration 

Toutle Confluence 2016 Construction (2).JPG

South Fork Toutle River -
Little Cow Creek Restoration

The Little Cow Creek project addressed key limiting factors for ESA-listed fall Chinook, coho, and winter steelhead in critical off-channel habitat of the upper South Fork Toutle River. The project extended the range of usable habitat for Chinook and added diversity to existing steelhead and coho habitat.

Coweeman River -
Baird Creek Restoration & Barrier Removal

This restoration project was the first stage of restoration following the Coweeman Headwaters design. We restored natural processes to 1.37 miles of the Coweeman River watershed that was previously degraded by historic splash damming.

Coweeman, Nineteen, and Skipper Creek Restoration

This restoration project in Cowlitz County aims to restore natural processes and wood loading rates to 0.7 miles of the Coweeman River and 0.6 miles of tributary habitat. 

Lower Cowlitz River - Delameter Barrier Removal

In September of 2023, LCFEG removed a 13-foot-wide steel culvert servicing a private road over an unnamed tributary of Delameter Creek. Removing the barrier and reconnecting the stream bed will restore normal habitat-forming processes to reestablish habitat complexity, off-channel habitats, and conditions favorable to fish spawning and rearing.


Riparian Restoration

Grays River -
Fossil Creek Restoration

This Wahkiakum County project in the coastal zone was designed to benefit ESA-listed Chinook, coho, chum, and steelhead. The project protects and enhances 16.17 acres of riparian habitat as well as 0.61 miles of instream conditions in Fossil Creek and the Grays River

Little Washougal - 
Riparian Restoration

This project was a riparian improvement and outreach project funded by the Clark County Clean Water Restoration Fund.  The goal was to work with local landowners to remove invasive species and plant native trees and shrubs along the Little Washougal to help mitigate the impacts of stormwater runoff.  In partnership with the Watershed Alliance, we installed thousands of native plants along the river! Volunteers were an important part of completing work at this site.
