South Fork Crooked River Vegetation Recovery
Summer 2023 our survey crews documented this "lifescape from landscape" transformation underway on the South Fork Crooked River. Just 6" to 8" annual precipitation in this subbasin but riparian tree planting has pollinators, songbirds and life returning in this 1.5 miles stretch of stream.
Soon, caging will be removed and migrating beavers should settle and stay. No permits required, just mother nature.
