Skinney Creek Restoration

Skinney Creek is a tributary to Chiwaukum Creek, along Highway 2, about 20 miles west of Leavenworth, WA. Being adjacent to a major highway has always had an impact on Skinney Creek but conditions were made worse in 2013 when a highway realignment occurred and pushed Skinney Creek into a bermed ditch-like channel between the old highway prism and the new highway. Yakama Nation Fisheries approached the Forest Service with the idea of reconstructing Skinney Creek in the footprint of the old highway.
