Along the banks of Prairie Creek in Humboldt County, the last wisp of fog gives way to a bright blue sky revealing a busy construction site below ancient redwoods. This summer marks the second year of construction by the Yurok Tribe on a large collaborative project that is transforming a developed and degraded site into the southern gateway to Redwood National and State Parks. In 2022, the Prairie Creek Floodplain Restoration Project began a two year phase to restore 11 acres of riparian habitat, create 800 feet of a new creek channel, and construct a second backwater pond to provide slow water refugia for juvenile salmon and steelhead.
