Second Phase Of Neal Creek Habitat Restoration To Start

Work is about to start on the second phase of the Neal Creek Instream Habitat Restoration Project to restore native fish habitat.  The Hood River Watershed Group says this phase of the project will restore habitat diversity and quantity on a ¾ mile stretch of the creek, particularly spawning and juvenile rearing habitat.   This project aims to restore the ecological processes of the Neal Creek Watershed through 640 feet of side channel and floodplain reconnection, the excavation of two off-channel alcoves for juvenile fish, 11 log jams, pool enhancement, and native riparian revegetation.  The Watershed Group has worked with nine private landowners to allow for the implementation of this project on their land, and has partnered with the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs, which has provided extensive funding for the design and the construction of the project.  Other funding comes from the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board, U.S. Forest Service, and Bonneville Environmental Foundation Tree Credits.
