The effects of forestry practices on watershed processes and fish populations have been studied for 35 years at Carnation Creek. This intensive, single-watershed case study has generated the longest series of continuous data on fish-forestry interactions anywhere. The study was initiated in 1970 by Fisheries and Oceans Canada in cooperation with MacMillan Bloedel Ltd. (now Weyerhaeuser Co.) and other partners. It rapidly expanded into a multi-agency and multi-disciplinary study that is responsible for much of our present understanding of how small coastal watersheds function and how forestry practices affect their functions. The comprehensive, long-term research and monitoring approach implemented at Carnation Creek has made landmark contributions to the scientific basis for sound watershed stewardship.
