Works / Parks – State/Federal Wyeth Fishing Sites / Oregon

DSC_0110SmallGreenWorks provided restoration and environmental improvement design for the Wyeth Columbia River Treaty Fishing Access Project which includes 3 sites along the Columbia River in Oregon: Wyeth Fishing Site, Gorten Creek Site and Rufus Site. The project is a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers assignment that furthers the U.S. government’s agreement with Native American Tribes of the Columbia Basin region to provide access to historic Native American fishing ground sites on the Columbia River. The Wyeth site, located 10 miles west of Hood River, Oregon is 3.3 acres in size and includes the construction of a new bridge over rail lines, new roadway, campground, boat dock, breakwaters, restroom, fish cleaning station and net repair area. GreenWorks provided native landscape and restoration design for this site. Additionally, for the Gorten Creek site and Rufus sites, GreenWorks developed strategies for invasive species removal; appropriate native riparian plant species lists for varying climate and site conditions; and planting plans for native vegetation and habitat restoration. Advanced American Construction Inc. was the general contractor on this design build project.
