Trout Unlimited Trail Restoration

If you have walked the Metolius recently you have no doubt noticed the trail and stream bank restoration work completed and in progress. The work is largely the result of partnership projects between Trout Unlimited, under the leadership of project manager Derek Stabb, and the Forest Service. The work has involved:

re-routing trails to prevent harmful erosion and sedimentation
defining trails using rocks and logs to develop consistent usage
native species plantings at sensitive riparian areas
monitoring efforts both before and after the extensive restoration work has taken place

Volunteer and student work has contributed significantly to the restoration aspects of the project and beginning this spring Friends Adopt-a-Trail volunteers will include monitoring of the project work in their efforts along the river.

A complete description of the project and a short video are available on the Trout Unlimited website.
