Restoration Projects for Crooked River Watershed Area

All Pages
The Deschutes Chapter and Home Rivers Initiative are pleased to announce the following areas for project work and volunteer opportunities which are part of the Strategic Plan for our Chapter and the development of our combined efforts in creating Stewardship in the Deschutes Basin.  If you would like to join the DROP program and become a Steward, these areas are outside the Prineville area where there is a monumental amount of work to be accomplished in the overall restoration and recovery strategy of vital Redband Trout Habitat in the Headwaters of the Crooked River System.

Crazy Creek and Deep Creek Habitat Restoration Project


Crazy Creek and Deep Creek Habitat Restoration Project
Plan
: The proposed project will aid in the reconnection of redband trout populations in Crazy Creek and Deep Creek that have been isolated from each other for the past 30-40 years due to a perched culvert impeding migration and a two-mile section of degraded habitat in the middle of the basin. Crazy Creek lies in a steep, walled canyon with dense riparian vegetation, high bank stabilty, high habitat complexity and provides cool water throughout the year to Deep Creek. However, the perched culvert and outdated roads in the riparian area prevent migration through this area.

Partners: Ochoco National ForestOregon Department of Fish and Widlife, US Fish and Wildlife Service, Crooked River Watershed Council.
 

Schedule: Fall monitoring dates will be shared in the summer of 2010. Spring work dates announced in the winter of 2010.
 

Training opportunities: Riparian species ID, planting techniques, monitoring plant diversity and health, monitoring water quality, fence building, and monitoring fish populations and movements.

Contact Information: Reach 
Darek Staab for information until fall dates are released
