The Dickerson Creek subbasin area upstream of the Navy railroad is nearly entirely owned by the Ueland Tree Farm. There is greater than 2,500 ft of anadromous fish habitat upstream of the railroad and, while not pristine, the floodplain area through this segment of the stream corridor is relatively intact and there is no development. Protection of the functioning floodplain habitat in this area is an important part of the restoration strategy for Dickerson Creek. Riparian forests have been previously harvested but are in the process of recovery. One exception is an approximately 200 ft long segment upstream of the railroad where the forest is cut along the right of way for overhead powerlines crossing the channel. There is a series of two natural falls on upper Dickerson Creek (at river station 6,000 and 9,000 ft, respectively) connected by a confined channel segment. Immediately upstream of the upper falls is a low concrete dam. Beyond this point, the channel gradient declines and the valley expands to include substantial wetland areas. These wetlands are important for moderating the hydrologic regime and augmenting summer low flows in lower Dickerson and Chico Creeks. Protection of floodplain and riparian areas in the upper Dickerson subbasin should be coordinated with management from Ueland Tree Farm, the primary landowner. Ueland Tree Farm prepared a Preliminary Conservation Plan in 2007. In 2009 Ueland Tree Farm granted a conservation easement to the Mountaineers Foundat
