Abstract or Summary
  • A s a recreationist, you have a unique opportunity to help maintain or improve the health of streams and riparian areas. A riparian area is the land adjacent to a stream, lake, or wetland. Healthy riparian areas often have moist, fertile soils that support many types of plants. These plants provide food and shelter to numerous fish and wildlife. The Pacific Northwest’s growing population adds to the numbers of people accessing our waterways. Recreational uses include fishing, kayaking, bird watching, camping, biking, hunting, jet skiing, and more. Although designated access points are provided throughout the Northwest, many people access the water from public or private properties that lack proper access facilities. In these places, proper care of the riparian area will ensure a more pleasant experience for all users, as well as better conditions for fish and wildlife. Healthy riparian areas: • Reduce the chance of damaging floods • Improve water quality • Store and release water, moderating stream flow • Provide habitat for fish and wildlife
