DESCRIPTION
The project sponsor was Kitsap County, who acquired this land and is in the process of stewarding it. Japanse knotweed was effectively removed in the watershed by the Kitsap County noxious weed team with Dept. of Ecology funding. The parcel has been named "Salmon Viewing Park". This property is located in Central Kitsap County, and was acquired because it is the last free flowing section of Chico Creek floodplain in the lower mainstem. Chico Creek is a high priority salmonid refugia in the West Sound with large (20-50,000) wild populations of chum, and depressed populations of steelhead and coho. The status of the wild cutthroat is unknown. The property is a 5.5-acre parcel that contains 2,200 feet of riparian habitat along both sides of Chico Creek. This parcel has retained access to its floodplain, its large woody debris and a complex profile of pools and riffles. Salmon Viewing Park has become a regional site for viewing the large numbers of salmon migrating to the watershed each fall. No signs have yet been placed on the property. A chain link fence was installed to keep debris from being dumped on site.
