Bear Creek Model Watershed

As part of the Willamette Model Watershed Program, work in the Bear Creek subbasin is aimed at reaching out to property owners and working with them to enhance stream health and habitat for fish and wildlife. The focus includes improving the connection between Bear Creek and its historic floodplain, restoring fish passage by addressing problem culverts and other barriers, enhancing wetlands, controlling target weed species, and revegetating riparian zones to benefit water quality and habitat for cutthroat trout and other native species.
