Thornton Creek Alliance
The Thornton Creek Alliance is very active in promoting and implementing habitat restoration projects in the watershed. Through grants, partnerships, and community volunteerism, we have completed a number of projects around the drainage.
A Few of Our Accomplishments:
Tributary dechannelization for fish passage
Plantings of native vegetation at various locations adjacent to the creek
Construction of frog pond to help bring back Pacific chorus frogs
Restoration work at a tributary creeklet and wetland, at Meadowbrook
Restoration of Willow Creek, a tributary to the south fork of Thornton Creek
Restoration of the south part of Matthews Beach Park adding a pond for off-channel rearing habitat for juvenile salmon. Wetlands were enhanced, and nonnative plants were replaced with native plants.
Developed a Streamkeeper program of motivated volunteers
