DESCRIPTION
The Lewis County Conservation District and the local landowners will restore the channel of Wisner Creek to allow fish passage. This project will create a new channel that would allow fish to access approximately 1.75 miles of upstream habitat. After the new channel is constructed, the area will be sprayed to help manage the canary grass, and then the open area will be planted to trees and shrubs. This project will create fish passage into Wisner Creek, and will plant vegetation to help shade the stream and lower summer water temperatures. When completed, the project will benefit Coho, steelhead and cutthroat.

NOTES

 

This project was applied for SRFB funding in 2013 (13-1028: Wisner Creek Reconnection) and rejected, and again in 2014 (14-1505: Wisner Creek Reconnection 2) and again rejected. Those applications have been deleted from HWS, but remain in PRISM in wastebasket status. This version in 2015 was finally accepted and completed with SRFB and CBS-HRP funds.
