Yellowhawk Creek & Whitney Spring Creek Project
All of the current riparian buffer restoration that is underway would not be possible without the work of inmates from the Washington State Penitentiary. These men work with Kooskooskie Commons Project Director, Judith Johnson to remove invasive plant species along the banks of the streams and replanting native species. Water Quality Data can then be measured and monitored by interns, such as Alyssa Taylor (pictured left).
Areas along Yellowhawk Creek and Whitney Spring Creek are current sites of restoration.
