Coldstream Canyon is affected by current and past land use including grazing, the railroad corridor, gravel mining, and recreation. Work to restore floodplain function and reduce sediment pollution began in August 2012. Please join us for a presentation on the Coldstream Canyon Floodplain Restoration Project on Tuesday, February 12, 2013 at The Cedar House Sport Hotel from 6:00 – 7:30 pm.
