Project Spotlight:
In-stream habitat restoration on Perkins Creek

In late September, five complex structures, comprised of large woody debris, were added to a half-mile section of Perkins Creek, a tributary of the Clatskanie River in NW Oregon.

The addition of the logs is designed to improve the creek's habitat for a variety of native fish. Many of Oregon's streams are hampered by a lack of in-stream woody debris. The interaction of the stream with large woody debris, and the logs and root wads themselves provide a host of spawning and rearing benefits for fish.

Oregon Wildlife Foundation provided funding for the project, which was headed up by the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife. The Richen family, motivated by an opportunity to improve fish habitat, hosted the project on their property. There are tentative plans for a second phase of this project on the lower section of Perkins creek closer to its confluence with the Clatskanie River.
