NSTU 2007 Habitat Restoration Project : Images from the Fall 2007 Northshore Chapter of Trout Unlimited stream rehabilitation project at Barr and Kissee Creeks. The projects goal is to remove invasive canary reed grass and blackberries from the lower reaches of Barr and Crissy creeks and revegetate with native plants and to add large woody debris to the stream margin, so that overwintering and sheltering habitat is created in the stream channel during high water events. This should improve the survival of steelhead and coho during their overwintering. As the native vegetation grows, the lower reaches of these creeks should be better shaded to cool the creek water, as well as for providing riparian habitat for birds and mammals.

Images are from a tree planting project on Barr Creek, a tributary of the Skykomish River near Monroe Washington. The Northshore Chapter of Trout Unlimited  http://www.northshoretu.org  has an ongoing project to protect and restore the lower portions of Barr Creek so that it can be utilized by spawning salmon and steelhead as well as by overwintering Coho and Steelhead juviniles. On March 11th volunteers planted over 400 trees on the banks of Barr Creek to help stabilize the streambed and to provide shade in the summer. All files are Copyright © 2006 J.

Northshore Chapter of Trout Unlimited Distributing Coho Carcasses in North Fork of the Skykomish Tributaries : The Northshore Chapter of Trout Unlimited  http://www.northshoretu.org working with Coho salmon carcasses collected and prepared at the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Wallace River Salmon Hatchery, distributes the salmon carcasses in to tributary creeks of the North Fork of the Skykomish. It is hoped that the extra nutrients added to these creeks will help support larger and healthier populations of juvinile wild Coho Salmon and Steelhead that utilize these tributaries as winter habitat.
