The Okanogan Conservation District (Okanogan CD) is working with a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) to develop designs for a wetland/stream restoration project on Johnson Creek near Okanogan, Washington.
The landowner and project partners are interested in improving water quality and habitat on a 17-acre wetland by restoring more natural hydrology through the implementation of channel improvements and restoration of native riparian/wetland vegetation. The project should also reduce seasonal flooding near a home, where there are structural concerns and water quality issues. Opportunities to maintain some agricultural productivity should be considered.
