Lassen National Forest

Logan Springs Meadow Restoration

The Lassen National Forest and project partners (American Rivers, Trout Unlimited, CDFW,, Forest Creek Restoration Inc., and others) propose to conduct meadow restoration at Logan Springs Meadow within the Pine Creek watershed. The proposed project is a meadow restoration project and would improve meadow hydrologic function and enhance habitat for the endemic Eagle Lake Rainbow Trout. The proposed action is to restore surface and subsurface hydrologic function and reduce or eliminate disturbance-caused channelized flow within the meadow system by complete fill of degraded channels, constructing BDAs to capture sediment, removing relic infrastructure that diverts flow, and constructing a grade control for stabilization. The project will restore the physical processes within Logan Springs Meadow responsible for formation of the meadow.

McKenzie meadow restoration

The Lassen National Forest and project partners (American Rivers, Trout Unlimited, Forest Creek Restoration Inc, CDFW, and others) are conducting meadow restoration at McKenzie Meadow within the Pine Creek watershed. The meadow restoration project will improve meadow hydrologic function and enhance habitat for the endemic Eagle Lake Rainbow Trout. The proposed action is to restore surface and subsurface hydrologic function and reduce or eliminate disturbance-caused channelized flow within the meadow system by reconstructing riffles and repairing relic berm and road impacts in the meadow. The project will restore the physical processes within McKenzie Meadow responsible for formation of the meadow and has the least amount of impacts in the short and long term.
