One of the volunteers from a local school plants native vegetation along the creek. When the vegetation matures it will provide shelter and food for steelhead trout returning to the creek to spawn. Vegetation also provides shade that cools water temperatures. Juvenile salmonids do not thrive in warm water conditions.
