Project Types

Backyard habitat completed project

These projects will help restore streams to natural conditions, improve fish and wildlife habitat, and stabilize banks:

  • Planting stream side areas with native plants
  • Removing debris
  • Removing undersized culverts, old dams or concrete structures to improve fish passage
  • Removing noxious weeds and replacing with native plants
  • Adding woody debris and stream gravel to enhance streams

Projects should emphasize physical implementation, and more project ideas are welcome.
