Project Status:



Wallowa River 6 Ranch Habitat Restoration Phase II

Much of the Wallowa River below Enterprise, Oregon has been moved, straightened & channelized to accommodate agriculture, the railroad and Highway 82. In cooperation with the landowner the GRMW intends to restore 2000 feet of river channel over a 2,600 foot reach of the Wallowa River. A variety of improvements will be implemented including installation of large woody debris and habitat structures, fish rocks, bio-engineered stream banks, riparian planting, side channel construction and channel re-meandering. These improvements will benefit fish habitat, channel form and function, channel and floodplain interaction and riparian condition. At completion the project area will be strategically managed with domestic livestock utilization to promote project objectives.
