Creek Restoration

This photo was taken at mid-Canyon in December, 2004, after the second year that the canyon was cattle-free. It shows grasses and forbs closely surrounding the creek, and the growth of cuttings planted in March, 2003. These plants produce a deeper and narrower creek bed to improve water temperatures, reduce sedimentation and perform filtering.


New willow shoots along the creek.


Cows have to stay high on the west ridge, thus preserving most of the watershed area and keeping them far from the riparian zone. Spring, 2004.
