Resurrection Creek Restoration

The Resurrection Creek Restoration Project returned a 1 mile stretch of creek and floodplain that were severely impacted by mining to an area displaying all the characteristics of a naturally functioning, self-maintaining ecosystem. (USDA 2007)

The successful restoration of this stretch of Resurrection Creek demonstrates the salmon habitat design features that can be incorporated in meandering stream channel and floodplain construction in the post-min reclamation.
