Pacific Northwest Research Station Road Maintenance
Road repairs are needed throughout the PNW Research Station’s network
of research laboratories and experimental forests to ensure safe access for
personnel and the public. Associated erosion control activities will improve
water quality and ecosystem integrity. This infrastructure and erosion control
improvement project includes grading and resurfacing roads, striping parking
areas, and correcting drainage issues, for a total of $200,000. All projects
are on Forest Service land, and most are underway or have been completed as
of summer 2010. This work is occurring at the Corvallis and Wenatchee Forestry
Sciences Laboratories, and on the H.J.
River, and Starkey
These photos show improvements made to a reconstructed bridge over Bear Creek
in the Starkey Experimental Forest, where PNW researchers have been studying
grazing on ecosystems and wildlife since the 1940s.
