Five aquatic restoration projects are planned this summer on the Wenatchee River Ranger District. A portion of these projects will require temporary closure of roads, trails, and campgrounds.

“We would like to give folks a heads up that it is a busy summer out there. You would be hard pressed to find another area with as much aquatic restoration activity happening. Please be mindful of construction activities around rivers and streams, and adjust your recreation plans accordingly,” said District Fish Biologist McLain Johnson. “The work involves a suite of restoration actions, from replacing culverts to installing log jams. The primary goal is to improve habitat for steelhead, spring Chinook Salmon, and bull trout.”

Restoration projects are scheduled over the next few months on Beaver Creek, Big Meadow Creek, Goose Creek, and Nason Creek. Below is the subset of projects that require a temporary closure. During closures vehicle traffic will not be able to pass through the construction zone.
