NetMap Watershed Restoration Analysis
NetMap is a new mapping software that is helping the LWC identify areas within our watershed that have the potential to be excellent fish habitat! Check out our Project Manager Jean-Paul Zagarola's webinar presentation below to hear the latest results of our NetMap analysis, and then scroll down further to take a closer look at the projects we have started in those priority streams.
The featured projects below are examples of where we focused on stream reaches that have been identified by NetMap as having the potential to provide excellent salmon and trout habitat. Some of the important characteristics of high quality salmonid habitat include cool water temperatures, mature streamside (riparian) vegetation, fallen logs in the river channel, and the presence of gravel in the streambed.
