RESTORATION PROJECTS

Damage to road in Mt. Hood National ForestThe greatest threat to watershed health in Mt. Hood National Forest is the 4,000 mile network of roads on the landscape left from a legacy of logging in our public forests. These roads represent an unmanageable economic burden on the Forest Service while simultaneously creating public safety concerns, sloughing tons of sediment into fish-bearing streams, and inviting illegal Off-Highway Vehicle use.

Every year, the Forest Service proposes a suite of restoration projects to address the damage of these roads and historic logging practices ranging from the creation of in-stream fish habitat to decommissioning unneeded and ecologically harmful roads. You can find project details of current, proposed, and past restoration work in Mt. Hood National Forest at the link below.
