Logs used for habitats

Triplicate staff

Logs and stumps removed from the Confusion Hill bypass project are being put to good use by the state's Department of Fish and Game.

The agency is using the items in salmonid habitat restoration projects on Sproul and Elk Creeks in southern Humboldt County.

The creeks lack large, woody debris that provides protective cover for juvenile salmon and steelhead trout.

"They're expensive and hard to come by," said Allan Renger, a fisheries biologist at Fish and Game. "This donation from Caltrans greatly contributed to the cost-effectiveness of these projects."

A third project that received donated woody items is on Hollow Tree Creek in Mendo-cino County, where Trout Un-limited is coordinating work being done by multiple agencies.

In addition, the items were delivered to California Depart-ment of Parks and Recreation at Richardson Grove.
