From April 2018 to March 2019, we achieved the following key conservation outcomes: Thinned approximately 12500 m2 of dense red alder forest to improve habitat for Roosevelt Elk; Improved access for wildlife and revegetated to 2000 m2 of wetland riparian habitat and created 100 m2 of shallow wetland habitat; Removed non-native invasive plants and re-vegetated a 1.2 ha field previously impacted by Scotch Broom; Maintained portions of additional fields previously dominated by Scotch Broom; and, Monitored and maintained 4 existing Western Screech-owl nest boxes. These restoration activities have improved habitat for key species of conservation concern, including Roosevelt Elk, Great Blue Heron, Red-legged Frog, numerous species of breeding, migrating, and overwintering birds, as well as salmonids. Restoration activities are projected to continue over five years until 2023.
