Status and Trends - Habitat
sEntiat Subbasin bar Past forest management practices and recreational, agricultural, municipal, and residential development have led to the decline of habitat quality/quantity. Impairments include reduced habitat complexity, connectivity, water quantity/quality, and riparian function. Upland management activities and the construction of flood control dikes have led to upland erosion and reduced channel/instream complexity, respectively. We are currently implementing projects that help address many of these limiting factors.
