The Tucannon River Large Wood (LW) Restoration efforts started in 2005 after the School Fire burned over 50,000 acres of forest and riparian along the Tucannon River. Large sections of the Washington State Wooten Wildlife Area were badly burned during the fire. Large Wood is natural and critical to stream processes and habitat complexity. For decades, human influences have undermined the natural recruitment and availability of LW in the Tucannon River. The Tucannon River LW Restoration Project is designed to improve river habitat for ESA listed Spring Chinook, Steelhead, and Bull trout, by restoring the natural benefits that come from LW and Large Woody Debris (LWD).
