Event Title

Newaukum Creek riparian protection and restoration

Presentation Abstract

I would like to discuss the 10-year history of restoring the Newaukum Creek riparian zone. This stream provides habitat for five anadromous fish including spawning and rearing for Chinook and steelhead. Because it is located primarily in an agricultural area, the stream has been degraded over the last 100 years. Over the last 10 years, efforts by King County, the Washington Department of Ecology, and others have resulted in significant preservation and restoration efforts. These successes have resulted in improved water quality (primarily shade and fecal) and fish and wildlife habitat. Community involvement has resulted in over 25 landowners participating in this effort.
