In Steam Wood Bank Network

The In Stream Wood Bank Network is a win-win-win for landowners, local economies, and conservation groups. It is a deeply collaborative project that brings together a variety of stakeholders and functions opportunistically to make our waterways healthier and more resilient.

In collaboration with the Cascade Forest Conservancy and with financial support from the Washington State Department of Natural Resources, the In Stream Wood Bank Network is a collaboration of landowners, state and federal agencies, tribes, and nonprofits that identifies and sources non-merchantable or fallen trees and uses a series of ‘wood banks’ to store wood until it is ready to be used for aquatic restoration work. The partnership includes a wide variety of restoration groups who will use the wood from the ‘banks’ to build in stream habitat. In addition to supplying wood for the restoration projects of partner organizations, the network advances restoration in new areas by helping to prioritize, design, permit, and coordinate the installation of small and medium-size wood structures to increase restoration efforts in critical habitat areas not currently addressed through other efforts.
