Second Restoration Workshop.
This second RFFI Restoration Workshop will be facilitated by Richard Gienger, RFFI board member and Chair of the Restoration Committee. The workshop will primarily focus on the extensive, multi-phased restoration work conducted in the Standley Creek watershed.

RFFI and our partners will start the fifth phase of this Standley Creek project in 2015. The project will include 29 specific site and road treatments for road decommissioning along almost two miles of inner gorge forest road to prevent 14,575 of cubic yards from entering Standley Creek. The sixth phase restoration project has been designed and approval is pending.

Tom Leroy of Pacific Watershed Associates will be presenting both a history of the Standley Creek Restoration effort, and the progress on the Coho Recovery Plan for the South Fork Eel River tributaries in the Usal Redwood Forest. Some additional restoration related updates are likely from both the Mattole and the Lost Coast Redwood and Salmon Initiative.

Information for those planning to attend: The driveway to the American Legion Burkey Hall is marked and located on the east side of Highway 101, just north of the junction with Highway One at Leggett. If you plan to attend, need more information or more specific directions, please email Richard at rgrocks@humboldt.net or call him at (707) 223 -6474 .

Anderson Creek in 2010
This photo of Anderson Creek in 2010 portrays the benefit that forest restoration provides for salmon and steelhead habitat. The very large Chinook salmon redd from the center to the lower right hand corner of the photo probably contains more than 3,000 eggs. Hundreds of salmon and steelhead often spawn each year in this tributary to Indian Creek in the South Fork Eel River watershed.
