2021 Habitat Restoration Project at Ancil Hoffman 

A new project to restore crucial habitat for native salmon and steelhead trout is scheduled to begin in late August at Ancil Hoffman Park. The Ancil Hoffman Habitat Restoration Project will recreate spawning and rearing areas by laying approximately 15,800 cubic yards of clean gravel into the flowing river and carving a new alcove in the existing gravel bar, parallel to the river. Project teams will add large woody material and plant riparian trees and bushes in the alcove, creating places for young fish to hide from predators and for insects and vegetation to grow for feeding. The project is expected to begin in late-August and finish by late-October 2021, before anadromous Chinook salmon return in high numbers. Crews may be on-site Monday through Saturday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. (noise starting at 7 a.m.) with in-river work occurring only on weekdays (and not on Labor Day). For more information, visit the Water Forum website​. ​
