Snake & Deford Creek Restoration Projects

The North Santiam Watershed Council has been working with landowners in the Snake-Deford Creek Sub-basin since 2008. Projects funded by the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board (OWEB), BLM Title II Funding and by the USDA Farm Services CREP program have  include improving fish habitat by adding large wood to the streams; removing  non native invasive species and planting native trees and shrubs along the riparian areas and replacing undersized culverts with larger structures that allow year round fish passage.
