StreamTeam efforts restore habitats throughout Clark County
StreamTeam is our volunteer-driven stream restoration program. More than 1,000 team members donate over 3,500 hours of their time each year to improve salmon habitat. Our StreamTeam members include utility employees, Stream Stewards, AmeriCorps members, scout groups, college students, youth groups, and many other dedicated individuals.
Our StreamTeam program proactively addresses the problems facing the Salmon Creek and East Fork Lewis River watersheds. Since the voluntary program began in 1992, more than 850,000 trees have been planted to restore approximately 120 acres of land along 12 miles of stream length. We’ve also installed 10 miles of livestock exclusion fencing, improved two miles of stream with bank stabilization, and removed tons of garbage — literally! — with the help of dedicated volunteers.
