Healthy streams: a family’s journey toward fish habitat restoration

This class will cover how a small woodland family northeast of Estacada embarked on a ten-year effort (ongoing) to restore their creek to improve fish habitat and allow for fish passage. Topics covered include planning, challenges encountered, lessons learned and outcomes of enhancing tree canopy coverage, placing large wood, boulders, and spawning gravels and removing barriers to fish passage. Integrating such efforts into family forest management plans, funding opportunities, and references for additional information will also be presented. The Bugni family own 83 acres, were the 2020 Clackamas County Woodland Farmers of the Year and the 2020 recipient of the joint ODF/ODFW “Fish & Wildlife Steward Award for Forestlands.”
