CPRD Wildlife Habitat Enhancement Project
Chehalem Valley Watershed Project’s CPRD Wildlife Habitat Enhancement Project will specifically address fish and wildlife management, specifically stream fish habitat, birds nesting habitat, and public education. The goal of this project is to establish seasonal wildlife habitat for endangered, threatened, and concerned species on Chehalem Park and Recreation District park land and to educate the public about these species. This project will require approximately $30,000 in labor, materials, supplies, tools, and services over the 2018-2019 school year.
Our students will survey several miles of riparian habitat along Chehalem Creek in Ewing Young Park and Spring Brook in Chehalem Glenn Golf Course to evaluate what areas will need wildlife enhancement. These improvements will include bird, bat, and butterfly boxes constructed by middle school students, native plantings, and stream restoration. Along with physical restoration, students will design and implement interpretive signage along trails to highlight their work.
