There will be a tour of the Denmark Creek Fish Barrier Removal & Riparian Enhancement Project led by the Mendocino County Resource Conservation District on Thursday, May 4th at 5:00 pm. This project was implemented in October 2015 and consisted of removing the legacy/old highway crossing, including about 100 feet of metal/cement culvert(s), to open up fish passage and remove a chronic sediment source to the creek. We will walk and talk through the restoration project with before and after photos and tell the story of how this part of the creek now serves as great habitat for yellow legged frogs and as a corridor for river otters and one day, hopefully soon, steelhead trout!
Denmark Creek is located half way between Boonville and Philo. Directions: take the frontage road off of Hwy 128, where Lichen Estate Winery is located, we will meet in the cul-de-sac at the base of Vista Ranch Estates road at 5pm. This project was funded through Prop 84/Department of Water Resources and the Environmental Enhancement and Mitigation Program/California Department of Natural Resources.
