Knowles Creek Update

OPB | Oct. 29, 2009 1:30 p.m.

Knowles Creek used to be a floundering ecosystem, but Charley Dewberry and his team have successfully brought the stream back to life. In their attempts to restore the watershed basin surrounding Knowles Creek, Charley’s team’s efforts have caused the number of juvenile coho to triple since their restoration began in 1992. Once a controversial project, the scientists who defied conventional wisdom demonstrate how well the project has worked.
