Mill Creek Restoration at Potter’s Pond

Restoration of the former log storage ponds along Mill Creek was completed in July 2015.  About a mile of creek has been enhanced with side channels, flow-through ponds, wood jams, and various other channel features.  This project will offer excellent rearing and spawning habitat for salmonids!

A video of this project’s development is available here.
