M2 Mid-Sugar Acquisition
Outcomes: acquisition of 40 acres of habitat, including 1,300 ft. of mainstem river and 550 ft. of side channel habitat This project acquired the floodplain portion of a 40- acre
Hancock Springs Restoration Phase 4
Outcomes: 1 acre of off-channel/floodplain connected, 0.10 miles of off-channel stream created, 62 instream pools created, 0.46 miles of instream habitat treated, 0.10 miles of stream treated with spawning gravel
Thermal Refuge Assessment in Wenatchee and Entiat
The Chelan County Natural Resources Department (CCNRD) in partnership with the US Forest Service (USFS) implemented the Clear Creek Complex project which addressed three passage barrier culverts. The original culverts acted as barriers due to high velocities, slopes and outfall depth. Approximately 2.7 additional linear mile of stream habitat is accessable from replacing these problem culverts with bottomless arch culverts. Important habitat used by juvenile and adult ESA listed Upper Columbia summer steelhead for rearing and spawning is now available.
Omak Creek Riparian Restoration
Outcomes: 1.1 acres of riparian acres treated; 650 feet of unvegetated banks planted with native riparian vegetation; livestock exclusion fencing placed around 1,300 feet of stream Riparian restoration along Omak
