Twisp River Cattle Management

Project abstract: 

The Twisp River Cattle Management Project provides riparian protection for Upper Columbia Steelhead in the Twisp River Watershed. The project was done on federal lands in partnership with the United States Forest Service (USFS).

Project goals: 

Construct a total of 7.9 miles of fencing throughout USFS land in the Twisp River watershed to protect stream, riparian, and wetland habitat where steelhead spawn and rear.

Project plan: 

A three person crew from Toppenish spent eight weeks during the summer in 2012 constructing fences to keep cattle from impacting highly productive spawning and rearing areas in the Twisp River watershed.

Project progress: 

The project was completed successfully in the summer of 2012.
