Prairie Creek restoration underway as part of transformation of former Orick mill site
For workers with the Yurok Tribe Construction Corporation, creating new fish habitat as part of the restoration of Prairie Creek in their ancestral territory is more than just a job. … This is the second year the construction corporation and the Yurok Fisheries Department have been working on restoring the ecological integrity of Prairie Creek. The five-year $25 million restoration project includes redirecting the creek away from U.S. Highway 101 and getting as close as possible to recreating its original condition after being used as a lumber mill for decades.
