Fox Creek A stream reborn

Lori Baker, and Darrel look at the creek outlet, and then make their way down into the stream.  At present the banks are bare, but soon, plans are to vegetate and stabilize all bare areas on the creek.

Water temperature is measured and various water quality tests are being made.  Note the fish on the right hand picture.  Once again, anadromous fish are finding their way to spawn in Fox Creek.  Coho, steelhead and other fish are now able to negotiate their way up stream.

Ever the Scientist, always the educator.  Darrel Whipple, recipient 1981 State Conservation Educator award  is presented the SWCD Award of Excellence, and the NRCS National Earth  Team Award. Only one group in the entire Western US receives the National award.  Darrel Whipple and Friends of Fox Creek well deserve this recognition.
