The Clear Creek North Restoration Project aims to restore 68 acres of riparian and instream habitat for the 11 different fish species that call Clear Creek home! This includes the last significant run of late-run coho in the lower Columbia River Basin. Though Clear Creek exhibits arguably the highest quality habitat of any tributary in the Clackamas Basin, human impacts have impaired habitat availability in certain areas of the reach. Through a combination of restoration strategies, including adding large wood and improving access to high quality off-channel habitat, this project will restore a historically pristine section of Clear Creek to its natural self.
