Lagunitas Creek Restoration V

Restoration Stories

For more than three weeks, Trout Unlimited placed nearly 40 logs, several tree bulbs, and a handful of boulders along a three-quarter of a mile stretch in the Devil’s Gulch area in Lagunitas Creek Watershed over September and October. The recently placed logs and boulders secured by threaded rods will provide shelter to juvenile coho and steelhead. The structures will provide the fish with a habitat in the summer. It will also protect the fish from the strong flow of the creek during heavy rains. Without shelter, juvenile fish often get washed downstream and perish. The local branch of Trout Unlimited has worked with the Marin Municipal Water District on the project since the idea was envisioned six years ago. Learn More © Mill Valley Herald
