Archie Creek Post-Fire Recovery Project

Umpqua Watersheds is a lead partner in a collaborative project with Phoenix Charter School and Umpqua Community College to promote shared stewardship of public lands impacted by the Archie Creek Fire, providing service-learning opportunities for local students and community volunteers by increasing outreach, education, and engagement related to riparian habitat restoration on the Wild & Scenic North Umpqua River. The goals of the post-fire recovery project centered on protecting the ecological integrity, cultural values, aesthetic qualities, and continued public access of heavily burned recreation sites such as Wright Creek, Fall Creek, Bogus Creek, and the North Umpqua Trail. With grant support from the North Umpqua Hydropower Mitigation Fund, River Network, and the Rosso Family Foundation, Umpqua Watersheds will be hiring a student intern to serve as a Post-Fire Recovery Leader to help plan, organize, and implement numerous community volunteer events in coordination with USFS and BLM partners that include riparian planting, noxious weeds removal, live-stake cuttings, and seed collection.
