Project Description

The South Fork of the Scott River has been significantly altered by historic mining and timber operations. The restoration project has already installed large-wood habitat features in the river and removed approximately 1,900 cubic yards of leftover mining materials. The project is continuing to restore floodplain connectivity, increase instream complexity and cover, and promote riparian vegetation. These critical habitat enhancements will improve spawning rearing conditions for juvenile coho salmon in the South Fork Scott River
