We are always looking for new projects!
Whitman CD is currently looking for landowners to do projects. If you have ideas please share them with us and let’s see what we can do. Below are some ongoing projects as well as past projects. If a similar project seems of interest to you please reach out!
Big Alkali Creek
A livestock fence was built to protect the creek from cattle. BDA’s were set in the creek to increase water retention and add some sinuosity and sediment stabilization. Plantings were done on the banks and the banks to secure them.
Little Alkali Creek
A livestock fence was built to protect the creek from cattle and erosion control methods were implemented in bad bank areas. BDA’s were set in the creek to increase water retention and add some sinuosity and sediment stabilization. Plantings were done on the banks and the banks to secure them.
Restoration on army corps of engineers land near the confluence with the snake river. BDA’s were installed to create microhabitats in the creek and plantings were done in and on the banks. This effort was done to assist with salmon recovery.
Old Palouse Trail
This project is done on a cattle field where enclosures were built to protect plantings. A variety of species were planted to help add vegetation and with streambank stabilization.
Done on thorn creek outside of Thornton this project focuses on restoring a riparian area. We burnt the weeds from along the bank then planted thousands of trees and shrubs in and on the banks of the creek. Multiple BDA’s and PAL’s were added to stabilize stream banks and retain water and sediment.
This is a public access park located between Colfax and Pullman. Union Flat Creek runs through the park and was covered with weeds on the banks. Weed control measures were taken then plantings were done in and on the banks of the creek to add native species for wildlife. Additionally, thinning of the forest was done to improve plant health and reduce fire hazard.
