Restoration Results in the Upper Luckiamute River
The LWC's long-term invasive species control and riparian revegetation effort along the upper Luckiamute River (also known as the "Model Watershed" Program) is a fantastic example of the progress being made towards watershed health with hard work, perseverance and strong relationships with landowners, funders and other project partners.
Knotweed control work in the Upper Luckiamute River started on the earliest sites in 2011, and continued as more and more landowners signed up to participate in the following years. Replanting treated areas with native vegetation started in early 2013, and continued with the addition of more landowner participants.
The photo slideshows below track these changes over the past decade and more. In some cases, we have seen a remarkable transformation in site conditions from 100% knotweed to 100% native plants. We are proud of the relationships we've made and the hard work of all the partners involved in this continuing effort to restore watershed health in the upper Luckiamute River!
