The Nature Conservancy has been doing some interesting work in the last three years on the Garcia River, in Mendocino County. They’ve been cutting down trees and strategically placing them in the river, to create log jams. These log jams grow naturally, as woody debris is flushed down stream by high winter flows and then trapped. Log jams create cover, deep pools, clean gravel, and shelter from high flows, which are all extremely important for Salmon survival.
