Progress Continues

It sure has been busy in Ohop Valley!

Since the groundbreaking celebration in mid-July, construction has continued almost non-stop. To date, the new channel is almost half way completed, and many large woody debris (LWD) piles have been installed! The LWD creates habitat, shelter and shade for salmon and other aquatic species.
