Whychus Canyon Preserve: Before and after creek restoration

The Land Trust's Whychus Canyon Preserve is beginning to look a lot different! See the dramatic way the creek restoration has changed the face of the Preserve.


In 2016, the Land Trust and restoration partners began the first phase of a six-mile restoration of Central Oregon's Whychus Creek. Efforts were focused on the northernmost mile of creek at the Land Trust's Whychus Canyon Preserve with the goal of improving habitat in and around the creek for fish and wildlife.



Restoration work began in August 2016 and finished in October 2016. The video above highlights the dramatic changes the restoration has made at Whychus Canyon Preserve. Learn more about the restoration.
