Fourmile Creek Riparian Restoration
This project site is located within a “double estuary” (both New River and Fourmile Creek systems), and contains critical rearing habitat for salmonids. This project aims to improve riparian health, habitat complexity and water quality while maintaining and promoting the working landscape. Project components include fencing and planting the riparian corridor, removing invasive vegetation, re-sloping the banks and placing large wood in-stream as well as creating off channel livestock watering areas. All major project components were completed in 2006 and 2007, with riparian planting activities to continue over the next two years.
