Project: Restoring the Deer Creek Headwaters at Childs Meadow

Description: The Project will gather data and complete assessments that will result in a future implementation project that will lead improved water quality, timing, and yield; enhanced habitat for multiple threatened and endangered wildlife species; improved soil health; and carbon sequestration. The Project will complete meadow restoration planning at Childs Meadow and integrate it into an existing large-scale fuels treatment project, resulting in a holistic headwaters restoration project. Restoration actions will be identified and designed to improve the meadow’s ecological function and climate resiliency.

Reference Number: 3600BQ1996010

Implemented By: Point Blue Conservation Science

Objective: Specific objectives of this Project are to: 1. Complete an assessment of meadow condition, identify priority areas for restoration, and integrate with upland/meadow fuels treatments. 2. Identify restoration actions that prepare the project area for the consequences of climate change. 3. Produce collaboratively developed meadow restoration designs. 4. Produce a scientifically defensible approach to evaluate restoration success. 5. Produce an implementation ready project.
