We are “boots on the ground” restoration practitioners. At LCFEG, our passion is seeing the potential in damaged, blocked, and undernourished stream reaches and restoring them so wild salmon and steelhead can rest, feed, and spawn there. Our vision is rooted in hydrology, geomorphology, bioengineering, and restoration ecology and we make it happen with partnerships, collaboration, and hard work. We look at waters big and small across the Lower Columbia region and ask how this particular reach—given its unique history, ecology, and potential—can be repaired to bring back healthy habitat for salmon and steelhead. Whether it’s planting trees to restore functional riparian areas or stacking large wood to create deep pools and redistribute spawning gravel, this is our contribution to the long term recovery of the Northwest’s native fish.
