Restoration on the Mad River

Current Projects:

Powers Creek Riparian Enhancement: 

As part of a greater vision to enhance fish habitat and ecological resiliency along Power’s Creek, a tributary to the Mad River, Mad River Alliance in partnership with the City of Blue Lake and others are removing invasive species and planting native species on a 500 ft. stretch of Powers Creek. 

Past Restoration:

Fish Passage Barrier Removal: In 2016, the Blue Lake Rancheria received a Tribal Wildlife Grant from the US Fish & Wildlife Service to remove a fish passage barrier near the mouth of Powers Creek, a tributary to the Mad River that flows through the City of Blue Lake and the Blue Lake Rancheria. The barrier was an undersized bridge and unreasonable amount of concrete reinforcing the banks and bed of the channel, blocking fish passage just 500 ft. up from the Mad River.


Our restoration projects need volunteers that are passionate about improving fish habitat in the Mad River. Join us!
