The North Fork Clackamas River Restoration Project is located northeast of Estacada on federally managed Bureau of Land Management (BLM) property. There is a lot of excitement around this tributary of the mainstem Clackamas because it is considered one of the only viable habitat areas remaining for federally threatened coho salmon in the Lower Columbia River basin. This project aims to restore natural river processes to this historically pristine habitat through the addition of downed trees, boulders, and an enhanced forest canopy.
Project Investment: $210,884
