Programs > Vegetation Management

Healthy watersheds depend on streamside vegetation to filter pollutants, shade the water keeping it cool, and to prevent erosion.  This vegetation buffer along rivers and streams is called the Riparian Zone. Riparian vegetation supplies many ecological services to the fauna, including people, living within the watershed.  

  • Food
  • Shelter
  • Shade
  • Large Wood Recruitment
  • Runoff Filtering 
  • Soil Stabilization
  • Clean Water


 
The Curry Watersheds Partnership has been involved in riparian restoration projects since 1990's. Many of the riparian areas in Curry County have been severely impacted by various land uses including timber harvest, agriculture, and urban development. Over time as the riparian area is encroached on and vegetation is removed stream channels begin to erode and simplify (which often leads to ditching by landowners). This is state of many of the small creeks on the southern Oregon Coast.
