Knee Deep in Creeks, Completing Work 'No One Else Really Does'

Two Fortuna Corpsmembers work to cut excess rebar used to anchor logs in Sproul Creek to provide salmon safe passageways in Humboldt County.

There are a lot of unique projects you can do in the CCC, but salmon restoration may be among the most unique.

CCC Fortuna Corpsmembers spend their summers knee deep in area creeks.

This isn’t a leisurely trip to the river for fun. This is hard work and long hours using drills, saws, and grip hoists to prep logs, rebar, and metal plating.

The end goal, a better habitat for some of our state’s endangered and threatened species. Corpsmembers, they call it fun and rewarding.
